It's been a year now since I came back from a month working at Anjali House in Siem Reap, Cambodia and I want to go back more than ever. Anjali is a day centre for under privileged kids, most of whom were working on the streets begging before they came here. The day is split into two - one half they spend at their school and the other half they spend learning English, life skills and playing games at Anjali. The children are fed and showered - two things we take for granted, but without Anjali, most of the children would be lucky to get one meal a day. The kids have had tough lives so far, yet are so grateful for what they have. It puts bratty, whiney Western children to shame.
So if you find yourself in Siem Reap and fancy helping out or just going for a visit, then contact them through the website. Sounds corny but it'll change your perspective on everything.
