Green Village School

Nearby attractions include Phnom Penh an hour and a half away, and Kampong Cham the same distance in the opposite direction. There are two mountain temples nearby famous for having monkeys that you can interact with. In the village are 3 beautiful pagoda complexes for you to explore, or visit during Buddhist festivals. There is also a recently opened swimming pool nearby that the kids like to go to on Sundays. In rainy months, there are many small creeks or flooded ricefields where you can swim with the kids and escape the heat. The village is surrounded by ricefields which always offer amazing sunrise and sunset views.
Football and volleyball are popular in the villages here. If you want, you can join locals when they play in the evenings. Some of the kids like to go running in the mornings before school as training for football. Again, you'd be welcome to join them.
There's a restaurant on the highway nearby that cooks and sells various insects (tarantulas, scorpions, grasshoppers, etc) to passing tourists. So if you are feeling adventurous, we can eat spiders and wash it down with local palm beer. Chol Mouy!!
About 3 or 4 times a year, we like to organize trips around the country with the older students. These are multiple day trips to places such as the beaches down at Kep, or Angkor Wat, or the Mekong River in northern parts of Cambodia. Any volunteers are of course invited to join these trips.
Definitely take a look at the weather if you are looking to travel to Cambodia. It's nice and hot all year round here. We have a rainy season roughly from June-October, and a dry season from November-May. Be prepared to deal with mosquitos if you come during the rainy season, especially at dusk.
For transportation, we can loan a bicycle for getting around the village, or you may want to rent a scooter. With some good negotiating, you can rent for about $100-120 per month in Phnom Penh. We can help you to get a good price.

We are 2 teachers: Chiva, the founder of Green Village School. And Kyle, a long term volunteer living in the village. Your accommodation could be a private room in a separate building near the school, or we could also try to organize a homestay with one of the students' families. The facilities here would include a room with fan and mosquito net, and a western toilet and cold shower. The room near the school is in a separate building on the same property, but students will not enter it. So you will always have a private space to retreat to when you wish. We can cook vegetarian food if requested (Chiva is also vegetarian so no inconvenience there). The market, where you can buy ingredients to cook for yourself or buy local prepared foods, is a 5 minute drive or 25 minute walk away.

My time at VS was beyond exceptional!
The kids are super kind, welcoming and eager to learn. They're also very interested in learning about the volunteers and where we come from.
Chiva and Kyle are also exceptional.
Kyle pours his heart and soul into the school and I could really see his impact.
Chiva is super welcoming and the kids look up to him. If youre lucky they will take you on sweet adventures. We had an amazing stay with chiva and his family, his wife Somnang is very kind and his 2yr old daught is adorable!
Thank you Kyle and Chiva! we will miss our second home deeply :)

An incredible opportunity to have. To be fully immersed in the rural village Cambodian lifestyle. Amazing kids that are eager to learn. Chiva is an amazing person so down to earth and really cares about all of his students. I would love to go back!

Volunteering here was truly a fulfilling experience. I had an amazing time in this small village. I had the opportunity to teach English to 250 kids, and it was incredibly rewarding to see their enthusiasm for learning. They were so warm and they always had a million questions for you. There was never ever a dull moment. Staying with Chiva and his family was also a highlight. They were incredibly welcoming and made me feel like a part of their family, kyle included. You get to immerse yourself in their culture and I'm so grateful for this experience and would highly recommend it to anyone.

To be in rural Cambodia in a place where foreigners barely exist and to meet a flock of teens that are fluent in English and ready to ask you a million questions is as rare and inspiring as it sounds.

The work of this school has helped propel generations of locals into the adult world armed with a strong conversational grasp on English.

I was welcomed by the students, host and other volunteers and literally felt at home within days.

I see myself coming back to teach or simply visit and see the students progress and celebrate things like the Khmer new year.

So grateful for this experience🙏

THIS IS THE MOST FULFILLING AND POSITIVE EXPERIENCE OF NOT ONLY PACKPACKERS BUT IN MY LIFE. Please if you are even considering doing this amazing opportunity DO IT and thank me after. Chiva and his family are now our family and ever kid we met will always be in our hearts.
For total immersion into the Cambodian culture and a challenging experience, please better your life and include GVS into yours.
