Supporting underprivileged children through Education, Health Care and the Arts

Who We Are?

Anjali House is an educational center that provides children and young adults with the support they need to break the poverty cycle. Anjali House provides support to 120 underprivileged students from Siem Reap ages 5-20 through education, family support and basic care including access to drinking water and nutritious food.

This is Sokim. She left Anjali House last year, in 2018, after being one of our students for 3 years. Sokim says what she misses the most at Anjali House was the lunch area, as it was her favourite place. She mostly loved it because it’s cooler than everywhere else. It’s a bit windy. But she also loved this place because you can see the beautiful garden from there.
