We believe change begins with education. We train Cambodian teachers so they can provide children with a quality education.

In a country still recovering from many years of civil war, our proven approach improves learning outcomes, and empowers Cambodian children through education. Find out here about SeeBeyondBorders including its history, values, organisation and approach.

We provide Cambodian primary school teachers with in-service professional development, supported by a structured mentoring program, to build dynamic, professional communities of practice. This enables them to provide Cambodian children with a good quality education.
