The Big Picture

stage-image CWF is a popular English-language center for Cambodians in Phnom Penh and is a socially ethical organization committed to a sustainable model of learning and cultural exchange. CWF’s Volunteer in Cambodia program offers a unique volunteer experience as our teaching program allows volunteers to pass on valuable language skills whilst experiencing life in Cambodia’s capital city, Phnom Penh. Our model benefits both our students and volunteers, and also enables us to provide a sustainable source of funding to our local partner NGO, the Cambodian Rural Development Team, whose work benefits some of the poorest rural communities in Northeast Cambodia.

Financial Transparency

stage-image As a non-profit organisation, we believe in open and transparent finances. We are audited annually by independent auditors to ensure full transparency of all financial transactions, compliance with local laws, and compliance with our vision and mission as determined by our Board of Directors. Our audits and annual operational reports are available here.

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 November - February group, Khmer New Year festivities during our February - May 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.

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.
