Update message from the host, January 2019
Hello, voluntourists, I am Kreng Huy and I have a report update from my school project in Cambodia!
Our school is open since 2016- 2017. We help poor and rural students learning English. However, it turns out that this year we don’t have enough financial support to keep up with this service. We have raised some money for them but it is not enough.
For this reason, additionally, to teaching and having a conversation in English, I also need some volunteers who can do fundraising for the school in exchange for hospitality.
In 2016, IFLS has been working well: we helped 900 students in the rural area and most of them give a smiling face to their studying. After that, 2017 we received donations from the families and the volunteers, and we earned our project in Cambodia around one thousand US dollars. In 2018, we were not as successful as earlier. IFLS got approved to give the scholarship selection test at secondary school to about 50 students to study in our school and 50 students at another primary school but we haven’t got enough financial support. This is why we now need experts fundraisers.
If you are one, feel free to contact me through the contact details below!
Non-volunteers can help too!
If you would like to help underprivileged Cambodian children by supporting their education, you may wish to make a donation of school supplies or money. Any amount, big or small, is a huge help. Also online-fundraiser are welcome to participate. See contact details.

Things to do in the free time
It’s a historical monument of Cambodia and was built in the 6th century. It’s also always fun to visit the local community. People here are very friendly and amazing. For local sights, you can visit the nearby pagoda or river. The people here speak Khmer and some of them can speak and understand a little of English.
Transportation and location info
The school/home-stay is located in Prey Phkoam Village, which is a 1 hours drive away from Takeo City.
There are many excellent cafes (with wifi), and attractions around the town centre.
It is also nice to explore the main market in town, though if it gets too busy, there is one a 50 minutes ride away from the school as well.
