About the local hosting organizationSeptember 24 Primary and Secondary School is located Trapaing Kok village, Po Angkrong commune, Boset District, Kompong Speu Province. There are about 2,000 students enrolling the schools who come from the surrounding communities. Basically, the classroom condition is quite shabby and considering the safety of the students and teachers are put in the caring list; therefore, the school need handful assistance in making physical development. At the same time, due to the lack of English knowledge, there is no English class running in the school curriculum which international volunteers are requested. From our experience of 2 year’s cooperation, we believe that organizing international workcamp in September 24 is an ideal program for the students and the whole community. Walk with us to make September 24 School into a center where its 2,000 students experience inter-national learning, inter-cultural living, and inter-professional exchange with the teachers. Join us to develop your quality of lives through your social engagement!
