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

Inclusion through education

We identify children with Low Vision and integrate them into Cambodian Public School System, or into Krousar Thmey special schools. The programme takes place within 12 districts in 6 provinces in Cambodia.

In total 40 inclusive classes will be set up and 183 teachers will be trained in teaching Low Vision children. Thanks to appropriate advocacy and capacity building for education stakeholders in 2015, we enabled school attendance for 65 children with disabilities.
