Description: 24 September School (24SS) is located in a very remote area in Kampong Speu province. Many teenagers grow up becoming construction worker or factory workers due the lack of education. Education is not a priority and not easy to access by all while poverty is struggling people for survival. CYA started our cooperation in 2014 and have been working on providing English languages class for students and supporting to renovate classrooms. It is very rare to have foreigners in this village so the presence of volunteers make the students and local people happy to have interaction while students are able to learn language for free.
Type of Work: Volunteers are going to work in various activities such as organizing local ritual ceremonies and events with local people, teaching English, music, arts, and sports to children, and working with local people in renovating facilities and classrooms.
Accommodation: Volunteer will stay in together at volunteer's house inside the village. Food will be prepared by local chef but you will be asked to serve, clean, and wash dishes by yourself.
Approximate Location: In a very remote area in Kampong Speu province
