A Real Cultural Experience
You can see from our volunteer’s feedback, that helping at the AKD project results in a rewarding sense of fulfilment and achievement. It also gives the best insight into Cambodian life. A unique and immersive opportunity is offered here at AKD, for travellers who would like to step off the beaten track and get involved with the local community.
Volunteers can live with Kamnat’s family in Battambang village and teach English at the AKD school. School days run from Monday to Friday and become busy in the afternoon. School hours are from 1 pm – 7 pm with a 1-hour break between. The atmosphere is excellent, as everyone treats you like one of the family. The Khmer teacher are helping you with the younger children and are happy to answer every question you have.
Since there has been set up a new system in 2018 it is much easier for non experienced volunteers to teach. If you are interested in new experiences and ambitious to learn new things you are, even without experiences, welcome to join and help the project.
