This school is incredible! The children are so kind and want to learn anything that they can. They appreciate every minute you give them. The younger students are so full of life and brighten your day every day. The older students are so great to work with! I really wanted to help them in every way I could because they are so amazing to work with. I will come back as often as often as possible.

This past week has been the best week of my travels. We set off on a 4 month trip hoping to volunteer, but I never thought I would stumble across such a special place along the way. You have such a wonderful family (staff) here, and I see how big all of your hearts are. That is what I love the most. Also, the kids brighten my day and really puts life in perspective for me. Thank you for allowing me to help and be of such an amazing place!

Feeding Dreams has blown me away, so many talented children and amazing staff. My eyes and heart have been opened thanks to you. I will go back to Australia a different person, I will look at the world very differently now, what’s important is love, dedication, family and friends. Nothing else matters. What you do is truly incredible, I’m honoured to have met you and keep up the good work.

I helped the Cambodian teachers with English, giving out pencils, paper, Band-aids, food, supplies, helping individual children with their work, adding bits of humour and my own Aussie stories. School is broken into 2 parts, which gave me plenty of time to have lunch and swim before going back. I stayed with the same teacher all week and she was wonderful in including me in the lessons, which was so much fun and was repeated in the afternoon - easy. The children are truly amazing, so appreciative of any help, so polite and well behaved.
I believe Feeding Dreams did more for me than I did for them. My experience gave me an appreciation for my own life and privileges. I was only there for a week, but I felt welcomed, useful and well cared for. Siem Reap is easy to get around, so many beautiful temples to visit, cooking lessons, silk farms, too many to list. I still remember the food, any kind you want and so fresh and delicious. I can’t wait to go back!

The staff at Feeding Dreams take you in and you get such a unique, local experience, and the kids fall in love with you and steal your heart in a few short days. This is a must do if you are in Siem Reap. I met lifelong friends, and gained experiences I will never forget. This little school is so important and does amazing work for the entire community. I cannot say enough good things about it.
A little goes a long way here, and anytime you spend will make a huge difference. Teach the kids, help make them meals, supply them with school accessories...It really shows you how much we take for granted living in the first world and really shows you what matters in life.

The decision to volunteer at Feeding Dreams in Siem Reap was without doubt one of the best decisions I have made. I spent four weeks as a teacher’s assistant helping a local teacher with English and maths. The experience had a profound effect on me. I got to see firsthand the major impact an on the ground NGO has on the lives of not only the children it educates and feeds, but also the families in the surrounding area.
The Feeding Dreams team are a fantastic group of dedicated individuals. The support given to the volunteers is great and there is always someone to help out if any problems arise. There were opportunities provided to sight see and everything was tailored to the individual group requirements. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Feeding Dreams to anyone wanting to volunteer for even just a week. The support you get is amazing, the experience is incredible and even in such a short time you do make a positive impact on the lives of some pretty special Khmer people.”
