Back to school

Back to school

At the end of October, Khmer public school reopened for the new school year. At Anjali House, we were busy getting ready for the start of the school year and distributing school supplies like uniforms, shoes, notebooks, and pens. After two months of vacation, it is time for the children to go back to school! Anjali House is a complement to Khmer public school, which means that all of our children must be registered in a government school to participate in our programs. In Cambodia, students go to public school for just half a day, so our children spend the other half of the day at our center. We believe every child has the right to an education. That's why… Read more

Happy Halloween from Anjali House!

Happy Halloween from Anjali House!

On Thursday, October 31st, we celebrated Halloween at Anjali House. We marked the day with costumes, decorations, scary masks, games, laughter, and, of course, some candy! To kick off our Halloween party, the children participated in a mask contest. We had a small fashion show so that the judges could decide whose mask was the most scary or creative! The children then split into teams for different games and challenges like: Dressing each other up to look like mummies Trying to pass handfuls of flour from one teammate to another Challenging their teammates to a bag race Identifying mystery items in a "scary box" Showing off their acting skills in a mime game Knocking down all the pins at water… Read more

It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever done – Samantha

It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever done – Samantha

Looking back to my experience at Anjali House, I can say it was one of the most amazing experiences I've ever done.  I was volunteering with children teaching them English, but I should say that I learnt so much from them! Seeing the children every day made me so happy that even a bad day could change in a wonderful day. Children are always spontaneous and never hid what they think or what they want to say. I absolutely love this way of living. I think that if also adults would behave in this way, we would live with more true love and in a more peaceful world. Now that I have finished my volunteering, I can see the entire impact this experience had on me… Read more

The world through Young Adults’ eyes

The world through Young Adults’ eyes

The Young Adults are involved in a new project: the Anjali House Magazine. From now on, they will be responsible to produce a magazine. They are proud of them and so are we. After the first successful issue, we decided to share the magazine with you to discover their superb work! First, three former volunteers (Marion, Salome and Jhenica) taught them what a magazine is and the steps needed to make one. To begin with, the students reflected on themes on which they will work on the different issues. They chose Cambodia, the environment, sport, music, art, food, etc. Then, once their theme had been chosen, the Young Adults thought about the subject of their article. It is important that… Read more

Soknang’s story – Alumni Anjali House

Hello, I am Soknang, I am 23 years old and this is my story. I stayed at Anjali House for 6 years, between 2009 and 2015. During these years, I discovered what I wanted to do with my life thanks to them because they offered sports classes and competitions. I immediately enjoyed sports, so after Anjali House, I went to Battambang to study for two years with the Salt Academy organization. I had sports lessons but also general studies in a Khmer school. Now, I am finishing my third year of study in a Khmer school while studying sport in a Government Sports Club at the same time. When I graduate, I'll apply to be a sports teacher in a… Read more

Sokum’s Story – Anjali House Alumni

Hello, I am Sokum, I am 21 years old and this is my story. I joined Anjali House when I was 8 and I was part of Anjali till 2012. After I had left, I stayed at home for few months and I worked. I tried different jobs but nothing satisfied me. I went back to school because of the promise I made to my mother in return of a cell phone. She kept her promise and I kept mine. A teacher suggested me that I should study in his school but I missed the deadline for admission. With the help of my mother who is a cook at Anjali House and the social worker, we looked for another school and… Read more
