As a non-profit organization, we are constantly in need of donations and funding, to improve our schools.
We live in a place where literally every penny makes a huge difference in the lives of some of the world’s most underprivileged and marginalized children.
By making a donation of any amount, you stand strong with us and others around the world with loving hearts who believe that even though no one can do everything, everyone can do something.
It truly is amazing how much can be achieved with just a small amount of funding from compassionate people like you and a helping hand from us. Here’s how you can help make a difference:
We are currently running a fundraiser to help us get the funding for building two new classrooms and an IT-Room at Lvea Village.
Our Current Needs
With the donations we get we can finance: “Our Current Needs” that we are still missing at our schools.
- School supplies: class books for the children and desks.
- Office supplies: paper, markers, internet connection etc.
- Salary teachers: monthly we have en expense of the salaries for our six teachers.
- A building for our school in de floating village, which would cost us $24,000.
Join our team as a volunteer. We love getting some hands-on help from like-minded people who share our passion and our vision.
Volunteers are an extremely important part of what we do and we appreciate your help in continuing our development as an organization.
People of all ages and backgrounds are welcome for stays of a few days, months or more, depending on our needs.
As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to work closely with our students, teachers and wider community, while experiencing the authentic culture of rural Cambodia and gaining an insight into the lives of local people.
We don’t ask for experience or formal qualifications, only a flexible attitude and a willingness to help in whatever way you can.
However, if you do have skills or qualifications in teaching, school administration, creative design, marketing, fundraising or anything that would be applicable in improving the school, we would love your help.
As a small, grassroots organization, the help you give will make a very real and tangible impact in our school community.

FAQ about volunteering
Most of our volunteers spend at least some of their time assisting our Khmer teachers in the classroom, although this is not compulsory. If teaching isn’t your thing, there are always plenty of other tasks to be done such as building, fixing, painting, cleaning and working on creative projects, to name a few. Depending on your skills and the length of your stay, you may also be able to assist with tasks behind the scenes, such as updating the school website, promoting the school on social media, developing our marketing material or finding sponsorship and donations. If you have a specific skill or idea you think would benefit the PCEF School, please let us know when you express an interest in volunteering.
One of the highlights for our volunteers is the opportunity to experience a home stay in a rural village. Facilities at our two locations are very basic but authentic and the host families are very hospitable. The bungalows are equipped with beds, pillows and blankets, mosquito nets and fans. There is a western style toilet and a shower with running water. The water pressure may not be as strong as you’re used to, but this is still refreshing, especially on a hot day.
The number of hours you work will depend on your role. The school hours begin from 7.30 am to 10.30 am, then an afternoon session from 1 pm to 4 pm, then a final session in the evening from 6 pm to 8 pm. We teach different a range of age groups. Typically, you will be assigned to one or more of these sessions depending on the number of volunteers.
On weekends and when volunteer tasks have been completed for the day, you will have free time for other activities. This might include visiting the local temples, relaxing in a hammock with a good book, cycling around the local area, taking a cooking class or going into Siem Reap town. You may also have the opportunity to attend a traditional community ceremony such as wedding or Buddhist celebration.
Our two schools and home stays are approximately 26km (30-50 minutes tuk tuk ride) from Siem Reap town. We can arrange a tuk tuk for you, or give directions to your own tuk tuk driver, it’s up to you. The cost for a tuk tuk is $15-$20 one way. Feel free to contact our two drivers who know the directions to the school
