Strengthening Sub-National Networks in Cambodia

Key partner of DVV International in Cambodia is the membership organisation NGO Education Partnership (NEP).

NGO Education Partnership is a membership organisation that promotes active collaboration between NGOs working in education and advocates on behalf of its 140 member organisations in policy meetings and discussions with the Ministry of Education Youth and Sports (MoEYS) in Cambodia. They coordinate dialogue and cooperation among key stakeholders to improve the quality and accessibility of education in Cambodia.

DVV International and NEP are currently cooperating on two projects:

Tackling the Implementation Gap in Education Reform; Mobilizing Civil Society

The overall objective of this EU co-funded project is to contribute to improved educational services in Cambodia through stronger civil society engagement in policy dialogue and implementation monitoring.

Further specific objectives include strengthening sub-national civil society mechanisms and capacity in the field of education to mobilize local CSO monitoring and tracking and bring about improvement in service delivery, as well as developing further and expand the activity of the national network of CSOs active in the field of education, aligned to multi-sectoral CSO development. A specific focus is on non-formal education.
