About the local hosting organizationTHE GREEN LION
About the volunteer workProgram Description During this program, you will teach the children team sport, mainly football (soccer) in a provincial stadium located 15 minutes away from the accommodation by bike. You will be teaching children from the local football team, so a love for football, accompanied with some football knowledge and/or experience, and team management skills will be needed! The class should be both technical and practical. Your coordinator will share ideas but you are expected to bring a go-to attitude and lead your group with drills, ideas and fitness exercises. Keep in mind that equipment may be limited to what you may be used to, so you will need to be resourceful and creative! With this program, we are aiming to broaden the skills that these children have in sport activities allowing them to further learn a range of important life skills.
Local accommodationThe accommodation in Samraong is simple and natural. There are no laundry facilities, so expect to wash your clothes by hand. However, there are some places that you can do laundry in the town too at a small cost. There are bikes available, which you can use to explore the area during your free time!
About the project locationSamraong, which name translates from Khmer into 'impenetrable jungle', is a town located in northwestern Cambodia, close to the border with Thailand. You will be located in a small, rural village located in the outskirts of town. This remote location will give you a taste of what rural Cambodia looks and feels like, while at the same time allowing you to explore some of Cambodia's highlights, as Siem Reap is located only two hours away. Sights & Surroundings There is a nearby park where you can relax or play volleyball with locals during your free time. Further away is Siem Reap, which is two hours away from the accommodation. Participants often opt to head there during the weekends to explore the famous Angkor Wat and more!
