Annie is Fundraising for Anjali!
I am now working as a Volunteer in Cambodia at Anjali House, a school for local underprivileged children, and hoping to raise money for this worthy project.
Anjali only exists and continues through the generosity and support of people like you.
Anjali is a daycentre who support 120 children aged 5-21. They have an education program (students learn English, Khmer, computer skills, general studies and creative workshops), a basic care program (students have access to basic amenities like showers and hygiene supplies, filtered drinking water, and 2 nutritious meals per day, much of this they do not have access to at home).
Anjali has a Young Adult Program, preparing our older teenagers for life after high school, helping them to apply for university scholarships, for internships, teaching them life skills, leadership skills and ethics.
I am raising money for several projects at Anjali House:
1. The Garden!
Anjali has a beautiful space behind the main building. We have already started growing aubergines, herbs, tomatoes, morning glory (a Cambodian vegetable!) and we need the funds to continue this. The resident cook uses all these fresh home-grown ingredients to make the meals for the students, creating a sustainable, healthy and nutritious diet. We need the funds for planting and growing the food, hiring help for gardening, tools and equipment etc.
In addition to building the vegetable garden, we are also teaching the children about sustainable gardening.
2. General upkeep of Anjali!
There are so many important projects that are in the pipeline for Anjali, it's simply a case of raising enough money to make each one happen.
Of course, we always need money for the boring stuff such as rent, electricity bills, etc... but without all these Anjali would not be here!
Anjali is a fantastic organisation, doing some amazing work for some very talented, passionate and motivated young people. If you would like to donate, I would appreciate even the smallest amount. Every little helps and every penny helps improve the lives of these wonderful children.
