Donations | Aspire School & Orphanage, Siem Reap, Cambodia

How does ASPIRE find the funds?


The ASPIRE’s main source of funding is provided by the generosity of tourists traveling through Siem Reap, who come to visit and donate money to feed the children of ASPIRE. These contributions are essential for us tor feed the children and meet the other running costs of the orphanage.

When you donate to our fund for the urgent costs of running the program, your contribution will go directly towards buying rice, food, cooking supplies, meats, fishes, vegetables, shampoo, soap, diesel, gasoline, and basic medical supplies. In addition to these costs, we require funding for long term maintenance and improvement of ASPIRE.


Dear reader, we are very low on finances at this point (January 2020) and desperately need more donations to help us pay for even the basic things, such as food and clothes.  If you are able to donate any amount, we will be very grateful.  Some of our supporters have set up donation webpages to make donations easier, so now you can pay by debit or credit card in British Pounds (GBP) or Australian Dollars (AUD) or you can pay US Dollars directly into our bank account below:

We are in need of sponsors to start to building our new dorms and classrooms for the children of ASPIRE. We are hoping to receive some help with this project from the sponsors, but it is a big venture, and we need to raise money ourselves in order for them to consider matching it. At present we are supporting for 20 children at school, and free education for 96 children from Village, between the ages of 5 - 16 years old. All of them from extreme povery family in Siem Reap Province. Life is very hard if a parent cannot find any form of paid work. Our children each eat three meals a day, which costs about US$ 2.40  per child. In addition, we need to clothe them with both school uniforms and play clothes, provide shoes, mosquito nets, and mats for their beds (and they would love the comfort of mattresses). We must have medical and school supplies, detergent, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste and we need petrol for our tuk-tuk and diesel for our generator, since we have no electricity on site. The generator is used only when absolutely necessary; it fires the computer, and we must constantly press “Save” in case the generator fails, as it frequently does. It also provides some television viewing for the children when it is too dark to play outside. Donations in cash or in person are very much appreciated and however small the gift, it helps us in our daily struggle to provide the daily basic needs of fifty children and 9 caretakers.
