The Experience

We currently have a shortage of volunteers as of Monday 30th of December. We desperately need motivated people to teach english to local children as, without us, many local children will be unable to get an education due to lack of teachers. If you can help please get in touch ASAP! No experience required and you don't need to be a native speaker. There is a daily fee of $8 for a bed + food (3 full meals per day) + drinking water + wifi

What a wonderful experience! Teaching at both the organization and the local primary school was such fun. The children are adorable and love to learn and practice English. There was such a lovely group of volunteers which made my time here great fun. You get lots of time to explore the local area and Siem Reap, and have daily trips to the smoothie bar! Very welcoming hosts :) I'd recommend this volunteering for anyone who wants to practice their English, teach in a different environment, and make a small difference in the lives of many children. Thank you for having me!!

An incredibly blessed and powerful opportunity to give back to the world, irrespective of how small it is. Simply teaching the little kids English and seeing how loving and caring they are changes your perspective on life. Anthony, he is a lovely and charitable man who has helped better the area. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to teach abroad.

Hello Zahra,

Thank you for your kind review. And loving our school project.
Savon is in Thailand, that's why she only talks with volunteers during that time.

We will try our best to change these problems step by step.
Thanks for letting us know.

Best regards,
ECC team

I loved this experience! I met so many amazing people and loved leading classes and teaching the local children. This experience also gave me loads of time to explore Siem Reap and see everything I wanted to. The dorms were a little dirty and there wasn't always enough food for everyone. Moreover, there was no manager present when I and most of the volunteers arrived apart from two ladies who didn't speak much English so we had to rely on other volunteers for information. It's a very very volunteer led experience so keep that in mind! However I did really enjoy it and would do it again

Hi Olivia, my name is Anthony and I should have been there but due to unforeseen circumstances I had to return home to the UK after a fall where I broke my collar bone and 3 ribs. Sorry for the issues you experienced. Savon at the time was at our school in Thailand so it was hard to get cover. I will be back soon so we will have other improvements too. Other than said, we are really happy you enjoyed the experience. Enjoy your travels!

Lovely experience! The children are adorable and it's so much fun. You get a lot of free time to explore the region and meet the locals / other backpackers.

This experience was amazing and one of the best experiences in my life. I was in touch with an other volunteers and they became my friends now. The host family was really charming and good predisposed. The time that I spent teaching the children was so gratifying. I received such a very pure love. They are forever in my heart now. The only bad thing was that the share spaces were not clean. The facilities are very good but they don't have enough maintenance. I really recommend this volunteering, you are not going to regret.
