World Education has been working in both the formal and non-formal education sectors in Cambodia for over twenty years in an effort to provide improved educational opportunities for Cambodians and enhanced life outcomes. Programming emphasizes capacity development of local stakeholders, with the aim of improving the quality of schools and increasing access to educational programs. Our work focuses on holistic, stakeholder-driven development, and improved educational relevance and management.
Over the years, World Education has established strong working partnerships with Cambodia’s Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS), Ministry of Women’s Affairs (MoWA), Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation (MoSVY), multilateral organizations, and international/local nongovernmental organizations. Through its work on child-friendly schools, teacher training, life skills, early grade reading, HIV and AIDS, mine risk education, safe migration, trafficking prevention, functional and financial literacy, and livelihoods development, World Education has built an extensive knowledge of the education policy environment.
World Education Cambodia’s work is centered on the following themes:
- Improving the quality of basic education
- Focusing on early-grade reading
- Promoting youth development and safer migration
- Addressing rural poverty
- Building local capacity
- Harnessing technology to improve education
