I really enjoyed staying with the school family! They are really kind and want the best for you. I helped with the English class from Monday till Thursday, 2 times a day. On Friday we played games and did arts with the kids. In the weekend you can plan whatever you want. Thank you Sean for having me and for sharing the Cambodian culture with me. I hope I'll see you again in the future.

The school is a big family! They are all very welcoming and warm, I could see and feel that people are really happy to receive have you a family member. The days are easy going, from the english teaching with the kids, supporting the lovely teacher Neat, which makes a big effort to keep the activities on the go. It's amazing how you can deep in the preparation of the kids meals for lunch a, so it's also a cultural immersion. Sean the director has a big heart ❤️ and I am very pleased to have met such a wonderful human being. I have learned so much these days thank you family the school 🥰

El voluntariado en la organización fue una inmersión total en la cultura local. Realicé diferentes actividades: limpiar aulas y otras instalaciones, acompañar en procesos de aprendizaje en clases de dibujo, artes, danza..., creación de actividades cantando y bailando para aprender inglés, mejora y reflexión de nuevas opciones de voluntariado, y concienciación medioambiental (recoger basura, poner papeleras, ...). La relación con todo el personal fue genial y te sientes como en casa. Cómo recomendación, sería muy positivo desarrollar un proyecto educativo más arraigado y con más docentes. Gracias la organización

En mi estancia acordé con el anfitrión enfocarme en las siguientes tareas: limpieza de clases y concienciación a los alumnos, desarrollo de opciones de voluntariado, optimización del equipo informático, generación de actividades interactivas con alumnos y recomendaciones futuras. A favor: buena conexión y empatía con staff, niños, familias y resto de voluntarios. A mejorar: espero que en el futuro la organización disponga de más maestros con experiencia y un programa educativo más sólido, hoy en día no confío en la labor de voluntarios a corto plazo como apoyo educativo a los niños.¡Os deseo lo mejor!
