Supporting the Ministry of Education in Cambodia

Our country office supports the Department of Non-Formal Education (DNFE) which coordinates all non-formal activities throughout Cambodia.

The Department of Non Formal Education furthermore provides equitable lifelong learning opportunities, functional literacy and skills development programs for youth and adults in the country. It works towards improving the quality and efficiency of non-formal education services and the institutional and capacity development of educational staff working in the field.

Our Target: The Needs of the Cambodian Society

The overall goal of the cooperation between the department of Non-Formal Education (DNFE) and DVV International is to meet education demands of the population as well as adopt the highly contested Community Learning Centers (CLCs) national standard that has been approved by the Minister of Education to reality. Professional development of minority groups and creation of employment opportunities for them should be ensured and lifelong learning opportunities for everyone are developed through CLCs.
