Joint Project with Aide Et Action
Goal: Contribute to a comprehensive Cambodian inclusive education system that caters to every child, including children with disabilities (CwD), girls, and those who are poor, remote, indigenous, or over-age.
1. Youth Star volunteers and local young people are affective agents of change, contributing to gains in functional literacy in rural communities.
2. Out of school children in project target areas are encouraged and able to complete primary education.
3. Education leaders/providers are better equipped to improve the efficiency of education.
4. The local educational environment is improved through advocacy and research.
Youth Star Cambodia and SIPAR continue our partnership on the project of “Promotion of Local Voluntarism for Community Development” to reinforce and facilitate the action conducted in the framework of the Youth Clubs.
SIPAR collaborates with Youth Star to provide supplementary technical support related to two activities implemented by the Youth Clubs:
1). Promoting reading with mobile libraries
2). Tutoring of disadvantaged children in math & Khmer language
The technical support consists in providing training, materials (books, school supplies, etc.) and monitoring. In 2015, support was provided to ten clubs already established in Prey Veng and Kratie and in one in Kompong Thom (Kork Ngoun). Youth Star and SIPAR collaborate to help organize awareness campaigns on social & environmental issues according to needs of the Youth Clubs.
Youth Star and SIPAR collaborate to plan, prepare, and organize workshops and skills exchange sessions according to the work plan established in the beginning of the year.
