the anjali team

Simon

Director

I’ve been with Anjali House from the beginning, since around 2006. I started as a teacher and then became the Director of the school in 2014. My favorite thing? I like to manage the staff and the kids and make sure that everyone is involved in the program. I always check to see that everyone is happy and getting along. I enjoy cooking for my family, and in most of my spare time I’m involved in household work!

Nancy

Communications and Fundraising Manager

I started working at Anjali house in February 2017. I have worked for more than 15 years in the humanitarian and development sector. My last job was with Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) in India as the Head of Communications. I am very excited to be part of the Anjali house team. The first thing that comes across when you enter the school is the happiness around and the commitment of the teachers, the staff and the volunteers towards all our students.  Anjali house is a life changing organization and I find this inspiring.

Teacher

I’ve worked at Anjali since 2010. I am the Head of Education and also teach two classes. I love teaching English and overseeing the E-Learning classes. One thing that I like about working at Anjali House is helping the kids, working with them. Another favorite thing is working for an NGO – the fact that we’re helping the street kids makes it special. I enjoy practicing my English through communicating with the many foreign volunteers. We learn from each other, share the experience – for example, how grammar is taught in different countries. In my free time I like playing sports especially volleyball and football.

Social Worker

I’ve been at Anjali since 2014 as a social worker. I help assess and improve the kids’ performance at Anjali and in public school, help with parenting advice, and provide the parents with more information when needed. I also regularly run parent training classes at Anjali House. Sometimes children don’t know who to talk to about their problems, so I like helping them a lot. I’m happy to motivate them. In my spare time I usually look for more information about social work that could help me, learning, reading articles and books.

Teacher

I have been working at Anjali since the beginning of 2016. I teach Math, English, and Khmer language to the youngest kids. I love teaching and helping the kids because they are so friendly and lovely. In my free time, I like to read books, listen to music, play piano, play soccer, and dance with my group’s members. Moreover, I like to research for things that are related to my classes, I also watch American movies in order to improve my intonation and pronunciation skills, and through that I hope that I can become a better English teacher.

Teacher

I’ve been here at Anjali since 2014, and I am teaching English to two different grades. I really like working with the kids, playing games with them – especially football. I’ve recently completed my University degree majoring in TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language). I also enjoy hanging out with friends and exploring the Temples and the countryside on the weekends.

Volunteer Coordinator

I started working for Anjali as volunteer coordinator in September 2016. I first came to Cambodia two years ago, when I was volunteering teaching English. I fell in love with everything about the country and the people and I am still here two years later! I am thrilled to be a part of such a fantastic organisation and I am so excited that I can share this with volunteers who are experiencing both Anjali House and Cambodia for the first time. Alongside my work at Anjali, I teach English at an international school in Siem Reap, so I am happy to assist volunteers with creative ideas and classroom preparation. In my spare time, I love nothing more than to escape the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap and explore different parts of Cambodia’s beautiful countryside by motorbike.

Young Adult Program Coodinator

I joined the Anjali team in October 2016. I used to tag along on the camping trips with the Young Adults & I really liked them. Now I am happy that I have a chance to work with them everyday. As a member of the Anjali team, I will use all of my previous experiences to help students set up clear goals and develop strategies to reach their full potential. I am going to guide students to grab knowledge from real life education. Adventure, football, and hanging out with friends are my hobbies to kill spare time.
