Our village is located not far from Phnom Penh. We offer you a unique insight into our local culture and you directly help with building a better future for our children. Come and stay with us. We warmly welcome you.

DESCRIPTION

Registered in Cambodia as an NGO, our organization is focused on providing free education to children in rural parts so that they can have a better future. It is an unforgettable experience if you are interested in gaining a meaningful insight into Khmer rural life.

Our village is located alongside Mekong River. We have built a school, and an organic farm. The purpose of our NGO and village is to give children basic training and teach them English, in order to make higher education accessible for them. All the money goes towards supporting our NGO school which provides English, Mathematics and Music classes to underprivileged local children, free of charge.

You will stay with a lovely local family in the village. All meals can be provided by the family at an additional price, to be paid directly to the family. If you prefer to stay in a personal accommodation (if available) you can choose between a bamboo bungalow and a riverside house, at additional costs to be paid on arrival.

Bicycles are available for hire in the village to explore the surroundings. You can also enjoy an ox-cart ride to the nearby farms. If you like, you can also join the locals in their daily activities and they can teach you how to work on the farm or how to make a Khmer house (at an additional price). You can also join the local fishermen for a day.

Traditional music and dance performances can be arranged if you wish. You can also hire a local guide who can show you around and explain about our culture.

Price includes:

  • Accommodation

Other Information:

In case you would like to book a private accommodation for your stay, please contact us in advance. All the money from these private accommodations goes directly to the NGO and helps in educating our children.

Meet Sophal

Hi! I am Sophal and I manage the NGO for its daily activities. We live here like a family and concentrate on providing good education to the children, who are the future of our village. The volunteer opportunity is a great way to have a look into our lives and experience local culture. It is a very meaningful experience along with all the fun. I welcome you to our village and help us in making it a better place for the future generations.


Location


I arrived at Chiro Village not knowing what to expect. I spent two weeks here and I was lucky enough to teach a group of teenagers English in the morning and in the evening from Monday to Sunday. Chiro Village is full of smiling faces and kind hearts... If you're thinking about coming here, please do volunteer. The kids and older teens as so excited all the time to learn more English. I can honestly say the happiest days of my life were spent at OBT Chiro Village. I will never forget the people here.

Hello Everybody, staying in Chiro Village is something you definatily have to do when you have the possibility. I stayed one month in the house with the family. They are the nicest people I met during 6 month of traveling. You feel so welcome and home when you there. The food is just amazing. If you want a bit more privacy there are really nice bamboo huts to sleep in. Sophal, the manager of the project, is the best hearded person i ever met. Its incredible how passionated he is working to increase the education and with that the opportunities for the future of the children in the village. When you are sick of looking at the culture and people of Cambodia from the outside, with staying in Chiro you can dive into the traditional and beatiful way of the life in the coutryside. There a lots of activities you can do: Going for a swimm in the Mekong at a beautiful beach, renting a bicycle, going fishing with a fisherman or making a tour on an oxcar. If this isn´t enough for you, there will always be help needed in the project and always some kids, who like to play with you. Even if you are just looking for a good accomodation, it´s 10 time worse to sleep in Chiro than choosing a hostle in Kampong Cham. Thank you again for the great time, Sopal! Lovely Greetings, Carlotta
