In Cambodia, Buddhism is a religion of nation. 95% of the Cambodians believe in Theravada Buddhism, and the monks hold an important place in society. As known, for Cambodians, Buddhism is more than just a religion. Pagoda’s (Buddhist temples) are also important for education and many boys spent some times as a monk. During the Khmer Rouge time, the majority of monks have been killed and nearly all temples have been destroyed. But afterwards, Buddhism once again became the state religion and every Buddhist boy is expected to to become a monk for a period in his life.

Volunteer will teach English to young monks and their age is around 11 years old. The level of English is beginner.
