The background

In Cambodia children begin their primary studies at the age of 6 and the government, though recognizing the importance of pre-school education, can’t guarantee an adequate number of kindergartens. The absence of this kind of education, together with the poverty of the families in rural areas, leads to a high school drop-out rate (more than 50%) and, as a consequence, to an alarming illiteracy rate.

The project

The Ecce (Early Childhood Care and Education) Project aims to guarantee basic education to 5 years old children in the provinces of Kompong Chhnang and Mondolkiri, in order to facilitate their entrance in primary school. The programme includes children belonging to most vulnerable families and to ethnic minorities, such as Vietnamese and Phnong, who wouldn’t be able to successfully be included in primary school, where Khmer is the teaching language, without an adequate training.The project also envisages a health component as an ongoing training programme for children and mothers, in order to improve children’s health by providing basic education on common diseases and sanitation.
