How does ASPIRE find the funds?




Food for children – Rice, vegetables, meat, fruit ($40.00 USD per day helps to feed the Aspire children)


Loan payments – Bank loan owing for building. The monthly amount is $1,064.00 USD

As at February 2024 the current amount of loan is $76,201.98. Completion date for the loan to be fully repaid is 2nd June 2033. We do struggle to meet our monthly payments so any amounts to help with monthly payments or lump sum payments $5,000.00, $10,000.00 etc can be paid off the loan at any time)


Running costs


Electricity (approx. $350.00 USD month)

Teacher wages (for local Kymer teachers – approx. $150.00 USD per teacher)

Gasoline for Tuktuk and schoolbus that bring village children to and from school each day (going to town for supplies, taking children on excursions).

Maintenance for Tuktuk, van, buildings & school.

School supplies includes books, pencils, teaching books, paper.


The fees paid by volunteers who stay at Aspire Homestay  covers for the volunteer food and electricity costs, any amount remaining goes towards the food for the children.


As Aspire does not receive any Government aid, we depend on sponsorship and donations.

Therefore, we ask and encourage our volunteers to discuss with us ways & ideas of fundraising for any of the above necessities. We are grateful for all & any donations.
