DAO OF LIFE
Calling all socially and environmentally conscious teachers and lovers of durian.
WHO ARE WE?
We are a small social business and community centre due to open its doors in the next few weeks. Our focus is on MIND / BODY / HEALTH / SPIRIT...
...DAO OF LIFE (PHLAUV NEI CHIVIT in Khmer) means 'WAY OF LIFE'.
We are a raw vegan / vegan / vegetarian cafe hoping to fill people with delicious and healthy foods and juices, whilst feeding their minds with useful socially conscious information and encouraging responsible environmentally aware behaviour.
We want everything that we do to remain in the spirit of our social mission...Even our furniture and decor in the cafe have been created using old recycled materials where possible!! RECYCLE, RECYCLE!
A MORE SOCIAL WAY OF DOING BUSINESS
The income from the cafe will help support our wider development activities such as teaching English, Art, Global/Environmental Citizenship and really anything else that fits our mission, so please get in touch to discuss any specific projects you might like to work with us on.
We are keen to launch a Waste Management project given the piling mounds of plastic and styrofoam clogging the water bodies in the area.
Our stunning rooftop will also provide a creative arts space for the local community.
EDUCATION, GROWTH & CHANGES ALONG CAMBODIA'S COASTLINE
We are based in the beautiful setting of Sihanoukville, right on the Cambodian coastline, beautiful clear waters and white sandy beaches. BUT...
Sihanoukville is still a relatively underdeveloped area despite its recent economic growth and increasing tourism. We know this because we already have a long list of avid students (teenage through to adults) who are waiting for us to open our doors to start English classes (private or group)!! The ability to speak English is fast becoming highly prized for locals and, not including the valuable personal growth learning a new language can bring, it offers a higher earning capacity or at least a chance to brush up their existing English skills working with native speakers.
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Believes in the DAO OF LIFE social mission.
We are looking for Teachers of English (fluent in reading, writing and speaking English), but will also consider teachers of other specialties or topics in line with our mission e.g. Drama, Arts etc.
Khmer not essential but very useful.
Teaching qualifications and/or TEFL or equivalent.
Ready for a challenge...
