Located in the Capital City of Cambodia, our original campus has almost 200 students now and we are looking for more native English speaking teachers who would like to join our team.
Nearly ten hours by bus from the Capital city in Cambodia, this school rescue project needs teachers who are looking for a more rural experience. Help us bring quality education to those who are most in need.
The Mahatma Gandhi never sought fame or fortune, but he did seek change. That is the same driving force that motivates those who volunteer with Habitat for Humanity. Most people are aware that homelessness is a growing problem. Rather than just talk about homelessness, they are stepping up to "be the change" as they construct quality homes for those most in need.
Recently the UN and UNESCO announced that 258 Million kids are not in school. The reason this is so alarming is that it presents a real-world problem that must be faced in meeting the 2030 goals for bringing a quality education to every child in the world in the next ten years. In the same way that Habitat for Humanity allows its volunteers to directly affect homelessness through building homes, we at GEV are taking on the challenge of those not in school by rescuing schools in dire condition and rebuilding them to include world-class teachers, curriculum and educational resources.
In 2016, we decided to start our first school in Cambodia, one of the poorest countries in southeast Asia. In many regions of the country, the the dire consequences of the Khmer Rouge and the chaos that followed, can still be seen. Foreign investors stay away, for the most part, still believing that the area is dangerous. As a result, education suffers. Like any parent or student from a war-torn region can attest, after the chaos, life goes on. Schools reopen. Students return to class. The problem is: there are not enough qualified teachers, especially those that are fluent in English. That is where we come in. That is why we are here looking for you.
As a teacher, you will get to experience first-hand the impact you are having as your students begin to communicate or improve their proficiency in the English language. Through reading, writing and oral exercises, both you and the parents will be able to witness changes as they happen. Like watching a child learn to walk, being there to witness a student grasp the English language and make it their own is an exciting process that any ESL teacher can attest to.
To begin with, we will pick you up at the airport in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. From there, we'll take you to our main office and talk with you about whether you'd like to work with students in our main campus, help prepare teachers in our Teacher Training Center, or work in a more rural setting. Whichever opportunity you choose, besides providing you a place to live, we will also provide meals while you're at work, work-related transportation, permit fees and a small monthly stipend. In addition, at the conclusion of your assignment, we will provide you with Certificates of Appreciation from the school, our international nonprofit, as well as from Minister-level officials from the Cambodian government.
If you are a Native-English speaking Teacher and would like to join us at either campus in Cambodia, our main facility in Phnom Penh or our remote campus in Ratanakiri, please contact us and we can begin a dialogue and answer all your questions.
