Overview

Join the uVolunteer Community Education Project and improve the prospects of youngsters from neighboring Cambodia by teaching English. Many Cambodian families cross the border to Thailand in search of work but their children often struggle to receive an education because they don’t speak Thai. Through the charitable endeavors of the monks at temple Wat Klong Phet in Trat, Cambodian children are taught Thai and other subjects.

As a community education volunteer, you’ll enrich the lives of Cambodian children aged between two and 15, providing English language tuition in 50-minute classes and playing sports with children within the temple’s outdoor space. This interaction is key to building confidence and helping disadvantaged students develop skills that will improve their quality of life.
