CambodiaIreland Changemaker Network is a mutually beneficial partnership between Cambodian and Irish organisations. Our aim is simple. To enhance education in both Cambodia and on the island of Ireland.
Because of CambodiaIreland, Cambodian-based NGOs gain access to the skills of Irish educators, masters scholarship opportunities through Irish Aid, and the support of Irish fundraisers and donors.
In return, Irish students and educators get to enhance their understanding of social justice issues, connect with the Sustainable Development Goals in a meaningful way, and play a real role in becoming active global citizens.
The CambodiaIreland Changemaker Network works with two Cambodian-based NGOs, called SeeBeyondBorders and PEPY Empowering Youth. Both are supported by Irish Aid and the INTO and both take part in the annual exchange program.
Every year, Cambodian staff and students visit Ireland, and Irish staff visit Cambodia. This is a fantastic learning opportunity on both sides – but it is also more than that. At the heart of the CambodiaIreland network is genuine reciprocity, shared learnings and lasting friendships.
SeeBeyondBorders works on upskilling teachers in early grades to provide children with a quality foundation in maths and literacy. Its approach uses a combination of best practise teaching workshops, and ongoing peer mentoring to ensure continuous and sustainable support for teachers.SeeBeyondBorders’ programmes are also financially supported by the pioneering company Horseware Ireland.
PEPY provides college scholarships for young adults, empowering them to build brighter futures for themselves and their families. The scholarship students also gain access to the PEPY learning centre. There they receive support in areas like English, ICT, confidence building, and critical thinking, to help prepare for college and later life.
We in CambodiaIreland don’t want to see anyone left behind. Right now, Cambodia trails far, far behind its neighbouring countries, but we are working to change that.
CambodiaIreland has had unparalleled success.
