Your Volunteer Experience
During your stay you will experience life in the heart of a local village where you will be able to indulge yourself with the local traditions. We ask for around 24 hours per week which will give you lots of free time to explore the area. Siem Reap has lots of attractions including Angkor Wat temple, the floating village, Kulen mountain as well as many others.

Volunteer Teaching In A School
At ECC we pride ourselves on being a 100% volunteer run project. Without you, the volunteers, none of this would be possible.
As a new volunteer you will be paired with another volunteer with experience for classes and government text books will be provided for you to follow the countries curriculum along with flashcards and other pre-planned activities. Our previous volunteers have put a lot of thought into helping the next generation of volunteers easily integrate into our project so it doesn't get overwhelming. We want your volunteer teaching experience to be a memory that will last a lifetime.
ECC (Education Centre for Community) is a non government organisation, located in a suburb of Siem Reap, Kingdom of Cambodia, created by Savon and Savuth in 2014. The main goal of ECC is to improve future prospects, enabling students to escape the vicious cycle of poverty that is so prevalent in Cambodia.
To achieve this, ECC offers free education to everyone, regardless of gender, age, race, religion or political tendency.
What Our Volunteers Say!
Savon is an amazing host wants to make sure all the guests are happy and have enough food all the time makes you feel at home. The teaching is a great experience we did it for three weeks and learnt a lot about the kids and culture and now we want to teach more. they appreciate the help but I would say at least 2-3 weeks is needed to make a proper difference and so the kids have same faces for a bit longer. this is a great experience to give back to the community! would recommend, thank you!
I had the best time at the school teaching primary and secondary. Savon was extremely helpful during my stay and coordinated things for myself and the other volunteers. I will definitely be back if given the chance to go back to Cambodia!
The two weeks I spent here and the local school are memories I'll hold on to forever. The kids are amazing, so thoughtful and happy to learn! Savuth and Savon are great hosts and I felt well looked after. Hopefully one day I'll be able to come back and volunteer again, until next time ❤️
My experience in ECC has been absolutely amazing. Children are lovely and it's so good to see their improvements every day. food is super good and the house, shared with Savon and other volunteers, is the perfect place to spend some weeks in Cambodia. I am so grateful to ECC family for what they do and the passion and effort they put in helping the local community. You teach some hours per day and you also have the opportunity to see attractions nearby. At ECC you can have a full immersion in Cambodian culture and life.
I would definitely come back one day if I could.❤️
This was such a special experience for me! This was my first worldpackers experience and it was incredible! Savon took very good care of me and other volunteers. I was very sad to leave the kids at the end they made me so happy and I will my babies so much! The village and all the locals are very special people and I enjoyed getting to know different people. The proximity to town is an easy, cheap tuk tuk ride, it isn’t too isolated! I highly recommend!
Now my experience as a volunteer teacher is coming to an end. These three weeks have been a happy chapter in my life. I loved the students and their teachers. They were very receptive and welcoming. Savon and Savuth are always there to meet our needs. This is a nice space where you can meet lovely volunteer teachers coming from different countries
