Cambodia Consortium for Out of School Children (CCOOSC) - Phase II

Project Overview

 

The EAC/AeA CCOOSC Phase II project aims to increase access to equitable, quality, and relevant education to 116,396 marginalized OOSC by focussing on 1) equitable access; 2) education quality and relevance, and 3) ownership and accountability through strengthened accountability of duty bearers and rights holders.

 

OOSC will initially be identified via participatory community mapping campaigns to bring those children into the formal education system, and then provide them with a mix of supply and demand-side interventions.

 

To ensure the sustainability of Phase II impact, project interventions are fully aligned with national education sector plans and support a number of Ministry programs and policies, including, School Establishment and Development Programme, School Quality System and Quality Assurance System, and the Multilingual Education National Action Plan.  Project interventions will be jointly implemented together with and financed by, the MoEYS. The Consortium will engage in constructive dialogue and build capacity to promote accountability of government representatives, civil society actors, development partners, youth and community members, and the private sector (where relevant). 

 

CCOOSC Phase II will intervene in schools across all 25 provinces in Cambodia. Importantly, each consortium partner will adopt a tailored approach that is suited to the needs of the communities on the ground. However, certain project interventions, such as infrastructure enhancements, teacher training and capacity building for education actors, OOSC enrolment campaigns, parent and youth advocacy, policy dialogues, and research and documentation will take place in all provinces (or at the national level, as appropriate) where the project is active.
