What will we do with the funds?

Funds raised through the Big Give Christmas Challenge will be donated to the Agriculture Skills in Public Schools (ASPUS) Project which incorporates vegetable farming into the main school curriculum in 44 schools in Cambodia. Your money will go a long way by:

  • skilling up Cambodian youth in sustainable, efficient and competitive farming techniques and methods
  • giving vocational and business skills training to young workers so that they can earn a sustainable living
