Description:

International volunteers will help out in two fishing communities by the sea, about 30 km from Kampot town. The children here face difficulty attending language, computer or other classes in town. The volunteer group will focus on English teaching and providing some other education activities for the children in these communities. In addition, help is needed on the mangrove field. The fishing communities have a long-term plan for mangrove reforestation. Participants in this project will support the development of the local communities while working on environmental issues and exploring the local lifestyle.

Aims and activities of the project:
• Work and interaction with local children and teenagers using English language
• Assist the local community in developing their eco-tourism projects and protecting the mangrove forest and fishing area
• Maintain the mangrove forest along the seashore to prevent future flooding as sea level rises
• Collecting mangrove seeds from the mangrove forest, nursing the mangrove seeds and planting mangrove trees
• Organizing environmental education workshops for kids and teenagers in primary and secondary school
• Continue the construction of a walking path through the mangrove forest
• Learning about Cambodian culture from local people and volunteers
• Explore and experience the real life of people in the villages
• Meeting and socializing with local people and children for multi-cultural learning activities and sharing
