At Anjali House, children and young adults are registered at local public schools. We provide them with mandatory school uniforms and stationery. Our education program supplements public schooling focusing on teaching English to all our students. We also provide classes in Khmer, computer skills, general studies and creative workshops.
The Education Program consists of 4 classes: starter 1, starter 2, lower beginner and higher beginner.
The curriculum is based around teaching English, Khmer, and creative workshops conducted year round by our partners like Writing Through, Angkor Photo Festival and volunteers with specialist skills. All students at Anjali House also attend a local public school as a requirement for attending our centre. Considering attendance at government schools is
just half a day, our children are able to attend Anjali House before or after attending their respective schools.
We cover all costs for students to attend public school including paying for school uniforms, stationery, and general donations to the school per student.
Main Highlights of the Education Program
This year was also spent improving the teaching skills of the staff and upgrading the curriculum so that the children continue to access the best of education. With the new addition of Oli Tooher-Hancock, Head of School, International School of Hyderabad to the Board we hope to make our programs more dynamic.
As an official partner of the “English Access Microscholarship Program”, sponsored by the US Embassy in Phnom Penh, we have received guidance on how to make the education program more holistic and practical.
Our partnership with American Corner gave our children access to books and scholarships. We also aim to raise awareness of the plight of disadvantaged children through our partnership with Soulcial Trust. Their partner – the Krousar Thmey Foundation for Disadvantaged Children including blind and deaf students – is enabling them to treat the differently-abled as equals and with dignity. The students from Anjali House and Krousar Thmey often connect over music thanks to
the choir run by the Music Art School of Siem Reap.
With time we hope that these interventions nurture our children into well-rounded adults who are ready to fulfil every dream they have for themselves, their families, and the community at large.
