Cambodia: Low vision must not be the reason for exclusion from education

Disability inclusion, eye health, and CBR

We have been active in Cambodia since early 2000, with partners in eye health, CBR and inclusive education.

Since then Light for the World with its Disability Inclusion Lab has become known as a strong resource on coordination, facilitation and training on disability inclusion and respected ally to the disability movement.

We work on inclusive employment and entrepreneurship, support for women with disabilities, and design innovative livelihood solutions in agriculture and regular employment.

In December 2017, with financial support from AVAST endowment fund, the Pursat Region witnessed the grand opening of its first high-level vocational training centre open to everyone regardless of their physical disability
