Provide children with severe and moderate disabilities in Cambodia with quality education

Main objective:

Enable children with severe disabilities to enter mainstream schools and receive peer education alongside their peers

Context:

In Cambodia, many children with disabilities are still out of school. There are many reasons: household poverty, distance from school, lack of transportation, poor school facilities, lack of teacher qualifications. But discrimination against people with disabilities is still very important and parents themselves are not always aware of the need to educate their children.

Project:

Our project, launched in 2017, aims to integrate children with disabilities into Cambodian society by enabling them to access education alongside their peers in mainstream schools adapted to their needs. We are working to have children with disabilities enroll in school and provide them with tailored educational services to keep them in school and to see their results improve. It is also about giving teachers the skills and tools they need to provide quality education. In 2018, 1,701 children (49.4% girls), 2,153 adults (49.8% women), 47 teachers and 18 schools were involved in our activities.
