Why Volunteer in Cambodia?
Conversations With Foreigners (CWF) is a socially responsible organisation building capacity in Cambodia through affordable English language classes for adult Khmer students from all walks of life, and raising funds for rural development projects by our partner, the Cambodian Rural Development Team (CRDT)..
International volunteer English teachers provide affordable English classes to Khmer students in a fun and informal setting, using our unique curriculum rooted in everyday Cambodian life.
Profits from student fees are used to provide core funding to CRDT for their work to deliver community and rural development projects to 6927 families in support of conservation of the critically endangered Mekong River Irrawaddy Dolphins in Kratie and Stung Treng, and the protection of tropical forest biodiversity in Mondulkiri.
Since 2006, CWF has hosted 608 international volunteers, and improved the English of 23,718 students. Our sustainable model of learning and cultural exchange has raised over $143,270 for CRDT.
“It was a wonderful experience. It was rewarding, character building, challenging, and immensely enjoyable. The students were a delight to teach.”Frank Leverett 2015
Our Development Model
With local students and international volunteer teachers helping to raise money for development work in rural communities, CWF forms a unique model of learning, cultural exchange, and sustainable fundraising.
CWF was founded in 2006 to help raise regular funding for the important work of CRDT. We donate at least 60% of our Net Profit every year, rolling the remaining 40% back into the school for upgrading facilities and future development, as a non-pofit.
This project creates a more sustainable source of funding through an activity which contributes positively to the community.
Profits from the school are given directly to CRDT as an unrestricted fund for core operation expense.
