Education and Life Skills

Cambodia boasts high enrolment rates in education, however learning outcomes lag far behind – a recent assessment shows that about one-third of Grade 2 students cannot read. Besides persistent problems in the public education system, underlying factors such as socio-economic and cultural factors hinder participation in education, as well as hinder learning in a broader sense.

Education and Life Skills is one among World Vision’s four strategic areas of focus in Cambodia.

Programme's Goal

Our Education and Life Skills programme's goal is to improve quality of learning and life skill outcomes for children.

  • Encourage greater community engagement in the education of their children, to strengthen the governance and management of local schools, and mobilise available resources to support teaching and learning
  • Enrich learning through innovative teaching methods and resource-rich classrooms
  • Support the Government to strengthen the implementation of education policies.
