3 Weeks teaching english in Siem Reap, Cambodia through IVHQ

I recently completed a 3 week placement in Siem Reap, teaching English at the Khmer for Khmer Organization (KKO). IVHQ was a beneficial organization as not only was I provided with extremely safe and clean housing in a local volunteer house, the staff at our house and placement also were friendly and extremely helpful. In the middle of my trip I experienced an allergic reaction to mosquito bites, and the staff at the house were able to get me to a doctor ASAP and even translated for me to make sure I had sufficient care. The children and staff at my placement were wonderful, as everyone willingly accepted me and encouraged my teaching skills.

Over all, I would definitely sign up once again with IVHQ as they provided safe, highly organized and structured opportunities to volunteer around the world.

Cambodia child special needs care

I was only in my volunteer program for two weeks but this experience will have a lasting lifelong impact. The children that I worked with and the amazing women that make this incredibly difficult work there life have taught me things that I didn't even know I needed the answers to. Working with children with special needs is difficult work but so rewarding, just seeing their smiles and earning their trust will fill you with a joy and a sense of hope that you didn't even know you needed to be added to your life. I got very attached to the children very quickly, it was tough to have to say goodbye to them but I know that I will have them forever in my memories and my heart and I will always have the hope that I will one day get to come back and work with them again.
