The beauty of this project is that you can chose what you will experience a community project and a conservation project, the vibrant town of Siem Reap and the serene beaches of Koh Rong Samloem, ultimately leaving you with many unforgettable memories. You will spend the first part of your project in Siem Reap, before transferring down via Phnom Penh to the island beach camp.
WHAT WILL I BE DOING?
You will spend the first part of your project in Siem Reap contributing to teaching projects, before transferring down to Koh Rong Samloem for the second part. We are flexible on how much time you spend on this project, and what you do with your time on each placement:
Teaching in a school in Siem Reap (minimum 1 week)
You will be a teaching assistant helping to support teaching in a local school at the heart of Siem Reap. Siem Reap is a captivating location that is known as the 'gateway' to the millennium-old ruins of the Khmer empire. It encompasses the awe inspiring temple complex of Angkor Wat, an ancient and world famous monument that is yet untarnished by development. It is a vibrant and cosmopolitan centre popular with travellers.
We recommend that volunteers stay for three to four weeks to maximise the benefit of your presence within the classroom and have a chance to build a strong relationship with the teachers. Those volunteers staying for less that four weeks may not have the opportunity to teach English to their own class but will play a key part with the younger children as well as arts and crafts exercises.
Beach Conservation and Relaxation (minimum 1 week)
Cambodia’s coastal paradise is home to some of the most spectacular marine life and gorgeous beaches in the world. The coral reefs support a dazzling array of tropical reef fish and seahorses and provide rich feeding grounds for turtles and a wealth of other marine creatures. The deep blue offshore waters support reef sharks and majestic whale sharks, as well as vast shoals of cruising pelagics. You will stay in the beach camp on the exclusive private island of Koh Smach alongside local, coastal communities and spend time soaking up the sun or swimming in the dazzling blue waters whilst helping to support our marine and coastal conservation project.
