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. We firmly believe in the value of providing children with the opportunity to access various forms of expression. Whether through art, sport, creative writing, dance or music, we aim to foster each and every child’s creativity. This creativity is an important tool to encourage social interaction and educational development.

These are basic rights that no child should be denied.” At Anjali House we provide each child with free healthcare, food, clean drinking water and education.

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.
