My experience in HDLF was incredible. I had the greatest time teaching the kids, who are so funny and joyful, and living with the wonderful teachers Nith, Sophy, Sopheus, Phearun and Mankind. Having meals together, getting to know each other more, joking around and talking about everything made it feel they were my family. Juan and Hannah are also awesome people, and I really like the project they are carrying out. So inspiring! I also loved the place, as its very rural. Getting to know the locals, their traditions and lifestyle I believe its the best way to get involved in other cultures.
I can't even think to any adjective to qualify this incredible human experience. I had an awesome, memorable time with HDLF "family ".
It was my first time as volunteer and I have zero regrets by choosing HDLF, for the future volunteers you will realise it as soon as you will have chance to meet the amazing human being Juan and lovely gf .Thea and his family, his parents are just ones most humble, helpful, joyful... persons I've met they welcomed me as a family member and any other volunteers. Teaching experience was a bit challenging first days, but local teachers are there to help u
This has been our first volunteering experience for Alba and myself and we have had the best time ever! I only regret not doing it before and having so many doubts about it! The country and their people are just amazing and what can I say about the staff from the organization... simply great people! You feel very supported and very loved and there is always someone willing to help. We had lots of time to do our own stuff and explore Cambodia, the food was good and it was interesting to see how the lessons were carried. We absolutely recommend HDLF, we really felt like at home! THANK YOU
After 6 weeks teaching at the school I’m happy to say I really enjoyed my time! Teaching was uncomfortable at first, but after a few weeks I found it a lot of fun. Nith, Sophy, Sopheus, and Phearun gave me a lot of freedom in the classroom. They’re amazing teachers to learn from. I really enjoyed working with Juan on special projects and learning about the vision and purpose of the school. To all my friends at HDLF, thank you for the wonderful experience! To all future volunteers, get ready for full, challenging days of teaching and living at school. It’s hard but fun!
Definitively this has been one of the best experiences in my life. I will never forget the time I spent with the children in the school, they are simply adorable, and it feels so great to be able to help them a little bit to get a better future. I'd wish I could have spent more time with them so I'm already thinking to go back.
The school is situated in the countryside 30min by car from Battambang city, near the school there's a small market you can find basic needs. I really enjoyed the place, the staff and the family living in the school made me feel at home and I already miss them.
We are a grassroots education organisation founded three years ago by a Cambodian teacher with many years of experience working in education. We have two schools which are run with the help of his family and other local volunteers. The main school is located in a rural village, 35km from Battambang and our second school is 5km up the road. In 2019 we will start building a third school so we will be very busy next year! After studying and tr...About the host
