The Anjali Staff
I started working at Anjali in 2012 as a teacher and about 4 or 5 months later, I was promoted as a Lead Teacher. Now, I am the Program Lead in-charge of both planning and implementing.
My background in teaching English has helped me understand my role better. At Anjali House, I feel motivated to grow and at the same time I feel problem solving exciting. It challenges me and matches my natural inclination to strive for perfection. Anjali gives staff freedom to make their own decision and not feel pressured to conform.
My main role at Anjali House is to support our relationships to donors and partners. I am passionate about education and equity. I have my M. Ed in Global Education and I am a certified ESOL and K-3rd grade teacher. Prior to moving to Cambodia I worked in South Korea as a teacher for seven years. Anjali House gives children the opportunity to explore and develop in a safe environment. I love Anjali’s holistic approach, focusing on both students and their families.
Future Leaders Teacher/Scholarship Coordinator
I worked at Anjali as an English Teacher for nearly one year and half before I took on the role of the Social Worker.
As a teacher I understand the feelings, interests, issues and behavioral patters of the children. This helps me in reaching out to them and enables me to solve any problem they might be facing. I am lucky that Anjali House has given me the opportunity to work as a social worker because I feel very connected to the role and how it helps the community at large.
I am the ‘Young Adult’ program teacher at Anjali House. I began my journey here as a volunteer for 6 months in 2013.I feel happy and fulfilled to work at Anjali House because I come from similar circumstances as the children here. A big part of my life mission is to help these children fulfill their dreams because they will be our leaders in the future.
I am a university student at Build Bright University where I study English. I have been working at Anjali House since 2016 as ‘lower level’ to ‘beginner’ level teacher for students in between the ages of 8 and 12 years old. With time I am happy that Anjali has given me the opportunity to teach ‘higher level’ of English proficiency to children who are 12-16 years old. I am very excited to work in such a nurturing environment.
My name is Chan Pi. I’m 22 years old. I am an English teacher at Anjali House. My students are between 5 to 10 years old.
I am studying at Vanda Institute and my major is Accounting. I chose this because when I was younger I wanted to work in a big company or a bank. I would also like to have my own business. I like doing housework, listening to music, and researching my work and studies during my free time.
In 5 years, I see myself graduating from university, having a job, and helping children by teaching them English during my free time.
I also want to find a good job for my sisters and help my family to have a good life.
My name is Heng Ly. I am a former student of Anjali House. I joined Anjali House in 2011. I am now an English Teacher. I studied at University South-East Of Asia which is located in Siem Reap City and I graduated in 2022. My major was TEFL (Teaching English as Foreign Language). I am also a student at Australian Centre for Education. I am taking an ILTES course preparation at the moment. I am strongly interested in teaching and sharing my knowledge with others. I am willing to help out my developing country by producing more educated people in my community.
At this time, I will do my best to support Anjali as much as possible. I am very willing to see the next generation have great critical thinking skills, make good decisions, have high self-esteem and do the right things in their lives.
My name is Sophim, I am 22 years old. I graduated from University Of South-East Asia with a degree in Tourism and hospitality management.

Thorn is incredibly important at Anjali because she is keeping our building maintained and secure.
She has been working at Anjali for 8 years as a cleaner and security guard. She is also a wonderful cook (trust us – her omelets are unreal!). Previously, she worked as a Khmer baker making banh chhev and glutinous rice. She also enjoys growing vegetables in the garden.
