“World Education’s role here in Cambodia is to support the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sport in its own policies and reforms.”
In a recent interview featured in the Early Grade Reading Community of Practice Newsletter, Mr. Kim Dara, Country Director of World Education Cambodia, spoke about the recent transformation of World Education Cambodia’s project portfolio.
Until recently, WEC used to use its own training curriculum and implement its own early learning projects. WEC has since moved away from that practice. Today, WEC’s work in early learning is focused on supporting the Cambodian Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sport in its roll-out of the Komar Rien Komar Cheh early grade learning program.
The Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sport designed Komar Rien Komar Cheh, the national early grade learning program, to ensure that all students develop a strong foundation of Khmer and mathematics in the early grades.
Under the All Children Reading-Cambodia and All Children Learning projects, World Education Cambodia is currently supporting the program’s roll-out in 799 schools and is providing intensive, one-on-one coaching to over 1,800 early grade reading teachers.
