The Save poor Children in Asia Organization is an organization that is entirely based on volunteers. While we employ a small staff (cooks, teacher’s assistants, house keeper), the main part of the English program is in the hand of volunteers.
That’s why we are always looking for committed long-term volunteers, who stay for 4 weeks or more. The longer you stay, the more you learn about Cambodian culture which will allow the students to learn more from you.
If you are interested in volunteering there are three options for you:

You stay at S.C.A.O. I
At S.C.A.O. I we moved into a new Volunteerhouse just in January. The house is right next to the school and the Center. Here the volunteers have their own house with two bedrooms, one for male and one for female. The volunteers staying at S.C.A.O. I cook for themselves and often come together as a group to buy and cook their meals during the week. The Volunteers’ House at S.C.A.O. I is very close to a local market where all variations of fruits, vegetables and meats can be bought. As well as this, Phnom Penh is very close, allowing volunteers’ easy access to the city.

You stay at S.C.A.O. II
At S.C.A.O. II, we have 4 rooms with multiple beds for volunteers. All volunteers receive three Cambodian meals a day. Volunteers can also use our bicycles for a nice ride around the village, located in the village of Sam Roung about 18 kilometers away from the heart of Phnom Penh. Here you will have a room in our school and sleep and teach there.

You stay in a guesthouse
Another option, if you don’t want to sleep at our organization is that you can easily find a guest house of any price category in Phnom Penh and come to our schools by Tuk Tuk or motorbike. We also have our own Tuk Tuk and we are happy to bring to our to our school, although we would be happy if you could cover the costs for gasoline. You can teach at our school and eat and stay with the children at our Center. We recommend, that you spend most of your time at our organization to get the most out of your time volunteering.
The prices for staying with us are as follows. All public holidays and weekends are included in the days you stay at SCAO, although you only have to pay for the days you sleep at our organization. If you for example decide to go to Phnom Penh for the weekend, you would not have to pay for your stay.
Your accommodation costs include a bed with bed linen, 3 meals a day (SCAO II), the utilities (water, electricity, gas) and the use of bicycles. The remainder is used as a donation to help with the day to day running costs of the organization.
