Support Our Continuing Education Fund
Every year, a number of our young adult students graduate from high school. For many of our students the next step to secure a brighter future is to attend University or an advanced course of study. We would like to provide our qualified and motivated students with that opportunity. Sponsors will be providing an invaluable service for these students changing their lives for the better. Help us help our students achieve their goals for themselves and their community. In exchange, the students will volunteer their time at Anjali House primarily in our Free Community English Program or on other projects.
To contribute to our Continuing Education Fund, we are requesting a minimum donation of 500 USD per year and a 4 year minimum commitment. Donating 780 USD is the equivalent of one entire scholarship.
Our Students Attend These Programs:
Students may choose a number of different paths to take after finishing high school including attending University straight away, taking English classes for a year before starting University, completing an associates (2 year) degree, or receiving technical/skills training. This fund is reserved to support any continuing education course our students choose.
Here is a list of the most typical courses of study:
Faculty of English Literature and Business Management
This is a 4 year program at a University in Siem Reap. The vast majority of our students will enter this program. All students will volunteer as English teachers at our Community English Program. Anjali House will send regular updates about our scholarship students. The annual cost for this course of study is 780 USD.
Faculty of Health Science (Nurse)
This is a 4 year nursing program in Phnom Penh. The nursing program is incredibly extensive and requires additional costs including housing. In Cambodia, generally female students attend this program. Please let us know if you have a specific interest in supporting nursing students. These students will volunteer with us as nurses whenever they return to Siem Reap. The annual cost for this course of study is 2,600 USD.
Advanced English Classes
Some of our most advanced current students and recent high school graduates attend a Siem Reap institution where they attend more rigorous English classes. This course of study costs 800 USD/ year. Note: When these students are under 18 years old, sponsors will not receive identifying information.
How it works:
After the Anjali House administration and teachers select the scholarship students through our application process, we will create a scholarship class. Sponsors will receive short bios about all the students in that class along with their goals and achievements. After each term, sponsors will receive term reports from the students and a letter from the students discussing their accomplishments.
Note: In line with our giving policy, we do not pair individual sponsors with individual students. Rather, sponsors contribute to a fund that is exclusively reserved to support our scholarship students and the Community English Program.

At Anjali, we support women and girls to reach their goals. One way we do this is through hiring and training women staff. Our team includes six women who are dedicated to the education of our young students. Let’s meet them! Simon is our executive director. Before she came to Anjali, she was a teacher at different schools and NGOs while she trained to work in hospitality. “When I started to work at Anjali, I fell in love with the work I was doing. I had a very good connection with the children and the parents. With my work, I feel very useful, and I could see the change in our children and families - they were more confident.” After… Read more
Our Future Leaders Program focuses on volunteering and internships in addition to skillbuilding. We encourage our young adults to attend events and participate in projects that will improve their community. Because our students benefit from being part of Anjali, we want them to give back through community service. Keep reading to hear some of their thoughts on these projects! In 2019, the young adults completed two community walks to collect litter. To further help them understand the importance of taking care of the environment, they did three tree planting events. Through these actions, they learned about nature, environmental issues, and how to take care of the place where they live. “When we were picking up the rubbish, we influenced people. We… Read more
We’re always working to expand and improve the impact of our NGO and offer the best services we can to our community. That’s why we underwent a review of our work in 2019. We saw that the community we serve is more financially stable and better able to provide basic care to their children than they were when we first founded our charity. We’re deepening our emphasis on early education, community engagement, and scholarships, and growing our family to over 200 students and their families. What changes are you making? We want to become a real community center and involve everyone in our work. One way we’re involving the community is by establishing a Parent Council and Student Council.… Read more
