Aspire School & Home Stay
Welcome to ASPIRE Training & Education!
Volunteers that choose to help ASPIRE can expect a wholesome and rewarding experience. Volunteering at ASPIRE will also allow you to be immersed in local Cambodian culture. If you look at our photo gallery, you can see various activities that the children enjoy with our past volunteers. These activities have been created by voluntary teachers, many of whom have given their time and resources, adding to the opportunities we can offer our children, such as Khmer traditional dance, music instruments, and other school activities. We also welcome people from all backgrounds regardless whether you are fluent in English or not. This is also a great place to volunteer as a group as we provide housing for multiple guests.
ASPIRE TRAINING & EDUCATION is a school and home for poor, homeless and orphans, located 7kms to the east of the center of Siem Reap, on National Road 6 in Trang Village. ASPIRE is a non-governmental, non-profit organization aimed to assist children who either orphaned, homeless, in poverty or have disabilities. We try to offer support to by offering free education to children especially destitute families throughout Cambodia .
Currently we are providing 24 hour care for 20 children and free education to children from neighboring communities. The children range from 5 years old to 16 years old.
We are currently in desperate need for any help we can get after being hit really hard by COVID-19 as we lost most of our volunteers and sponsors. We are running really low on funds and could potentially lose our school due to lack of payments to our credit loans.
We accept all volunteers as one of our own and we treat everyone as part of our family. As a volunteer, you will be assisting the school teacher to teach English to the 30 children we currently house under foster care. However, you are more than welcome to teach them other cool hobbies as well!
