That guy in the yellow shirt is Lanny, from Toronto, Canada. He visited Cambodia after a holiday in Thailand and while he was in Siem Reap decided to visit the school and try some teaching. In fact we've had visitors from USA, Scotland, Ireland, UK, Holland, Denmark, Czech Republic, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Japan, China, Australia, New Zealand ....ummm, we're sure we've missed a few countries.
It's easy to become a volunteer
If you even have half an inclination to volunteer teach - try it! Savong School offers the opportunity whether you are staying in Siem Reap for only a few days, a few weeks or for longer periods.
The first step is to contact us. Either contact Savong directly (see Contacts) or communicate with Duncan Stuart who acts as a kind of secretary to Savong's School.
What you need to sort out is:
- How long you'd like to try volunteering for.
- Whether your days in Siem Reap are school days or school holidays.
- Whether you'd like to come with a friend. (It's more fun.)
- Transport arrangements - which are easy to sort out with Savong.
Below. Colm Power from Ireland. He came over to run in the Angkor Wat marathon (gasp!) and stayed on to teach at the school.
