Anjali House is the educational shelter in Siem Reap where my Writing Through Cambodia creative writing workshop started five years ago. Since then, it has become important to me in ways that go far beyond my own workshop with the older kids.
Last month when I was there, I met with the people from Phare Cambodian Circus, an amazing outfit which I’ve written about before and will write about again. Out of that meeting grew several new projects, one of which was the circus arts workshop that they  held for some of the younger kids at Anjali House. Phare is raising money for a permanent home in Siem Reap, and this “Thank You Video” was made for one of their key donors. It was terrific that Phare chose the Anjali House kids to host for this workshop, and the resulting video is too adorable not to share. Take a look:
