ASPIRE TRAINING & EDUCATION (NGO), non-governmental, non-profit organization is looking for visitors or volunteers like you, who are willing to contribute their time at an orphanage and school located 7 km to the south of central Siem Reap city at Trang Village. Giving just a few days of your time teaching and interacting with the children, or working on community projects makes the world of difference for those in need. It was a long time coming 5 years ago when we started to build a school for poor, homeless and orphaned children in our community here at Trang Village. But our school is not finished yet, and we are in need of help from people like you, to fundraise before coming to volunteer at ASPIRE. The donations will be used to complete the second level of our school for 200 children, intended to open in August 2012.
The ASPIRE school for poor, homeless and orphaned children in Siem Reap, Cambodia, and provides food, shelter, protection and education for those who come from a background of extreme poverty and deprivation. Volunteers are able to interact with the children through educational classes and are also encouraged to become involved in community projects. The ASPIRE currently has no sponsorship, which means that we are fully reliant on donations. While giving your time teaching and interacting with the children is invaluable, a small financial donation can go a very long way. Other ways to donate include food items such as: rice, meats, oil, soy sauce, fish sauce, sugar, salt, garlic; toiletries such as: shampoo, soap, toothbrushes and toothpasts; and school supplies: stationary, books, pens, and pencils. Creating a supportive and nurturing environment for these kids is the most important step in bettering their lives. Also we will ask all volunteers to contribute the cash donations $100 US per week for feeding the children and raising money for running cost of school project.
If you would like to volunteer at ASPIRE school, please contact us via e-mail and we will ask you to complete a simple application form to give us your basic details and the dates you are available. There is a minimum age limit of 18 unless accompanied by a parent. We also welcome any volunteering family to our orphanage. We are also provide the certificate of completion for the volunteers, who is finished the project for volunteering at ASPIRE.
The ASPIRE school provides 80 children, from families suffering from extreme poverty, with free education as well as 7kg of rice per child each month. They range in age from 6 to 14 years old, and many have never been to school. Currently, we have no sponsorship, making the provision of their food and schooling very difficult. ASPIRE is a (NGO) non-governmental, non profit organsation; we do not have any support from the government. We are fully reliant on donations from visitors and volunteers who come to ASPIRE and give donations to help support the children.
