Meet Vandy

Vandy is one of the hardest-working people you could ever hope to meet, all while being incredibly generous. Both with his time and his heart. Despite having a full-time job and studying in the evenings, he still finds time to be a teacher and mentor to students at Anjali.  He wants to give back to the organization that helped him, so other students can follow in his footsteps. ‘I wanted to come back to Anjali House to teach and share some of the things I learned here with other students so they can become successful.’ Vandy is 22, the second of four siblings raised by their mother in the Sala Kamreuk district of Siem Reap. Sadly, like so many rural… Read more

Our Mobile Library Is Back!

A Pandemic Project We initially launched our mobile library back in 2020 at the beginning stages of the pandemic. Since our students were no longer able to come to Anjali House - we thought we would go to them! We had 115 mobile library hours in 2020, accessing 815 children.  Covid began to spread in Cambodian communities in early 2021.  W the increased restrictions and dangers in gathering in groups in 2021, we had to stop the program.  This initiative remained dear in our hearts as we wanted to continue to utilize our materials across our community.  And We Are Back Up and Running! Thanks to the Women’s International Group in Phnom Penh, we have been able to restart our… Read more

A Volunteer Experience – Anaïs

Traveling During the Pandemic I started volunteering for Anjali House during the Covid period. I had to start my adventure with a one-week mandatory quarantine in Phnom Penh. I was lucky, the government had reduced the quarantine from two weeks to one for vaccinated people prior to my arrival. So it was one week after my arrival in Cambodia that I was able to start volunteering for Anjali House!  Classes and Communication These 10 months went by so fast! I didn't see the time passing! My main mission was related to the communication of the association. I was in charge of… Read more

A Volunteer Experience – Lena’s Reflection

Meet Léna, Our Volunteer Coordinator My name is Léna and I have been working as a volunteer in Siem Reap since September 2021. Now that my time at Anjali House is coming to a close, I took some time to reflect on my experience. Life in Cambodia has changed a lot since I arrived here. At the time I arrived, the 14 days of quarantine were still mandatory. The country was still closed to tourists and Siem Reap was going through major roadwork. Everything seemed uncertain, but I was amazed by my surroundings and ready to get to work.   It was my first time in Asia, but for some reason, Cambodia felt familiar. I adapted myself rather quickly to… Read more
