Our programs are designed to offer a completely unique cultural experience, while still contributing in a concrete way to Cambodian development.

Each group lasts a whole semester of teaching at CWF - 3 months, and each semester offers unique cultural experiences - from wedding season in our December - March group, Khmer New Year festivities during our March - June group. Later in the year, the wet season brings incredible natural events such as the reversal of flow of the Tonlé Sap River, and the end of the wet season is marked by Bon Om Teuk - Water Festival.

Upcoming Semester: March 2015

Celebrate Khmer New Year 2015 with us in Phnom Penh, Cambodia!

Covering the last half of the dry season, this semester also includes the nationwide celebrations for Khmer New Year, King Norodom Sihamoni’s birthday, the birth, enlightenment and death of Siddhārtha Gautama (Buddha), and the ceremonial beginning of the rice planting season as the rains return in May.

The Code


CWF has joined The Code, helping to end commercial sexual exploitation of children. We've always strongly believed in the rights of children to be protected from all forms of abuse. Now we are working to implement The Code, and working with partners in Cambodia and abroad to bring about a safer world for vulnerable children.
