Our Purpose

SeeBeyondBorders provides Cambodian children with access to quality teaching and learning at school. Our objective is to have more children complete their primary education and progress to lower secondary school.

We train teachers, develop school infrastructure and support local families educating their children in Cambodia - a country that has been ravaged by war, genocide, repression and starvation.

We are registered as a charity in Australia and the United Kingdom and operate as a registered international non-government organisation in Cambodia.  We have no religious or political affiliations.

Values

  • Generosity of spirit: by virtue of our wealth and privilege, we have a responsibility to those in need.
  • Justice and Equity: honest and fair dealings with all people, regardless of similarities or differences, including but not restricted to gender, ability or disability, culture, or religious belief.
  • Dignity and respect for difference: all people are of equal esteem. We learn from others and help others learn, including but not restricted to those who may be different due to gender, ability or disability, culture, or religious belief.
  • Openness to all systems of belief that respect and nurture life, independent of religious or political affiliation.
  • Authenticity and transparency: always searching for better ways to deliver effective programs with a responsibility to ensure openness in communications and accountability for our actions.
  • Enduring legacies: through a commitment to local partnerships that lead to Cambodian autonomy.

We are committed to respecting and engaging with local communities to sustainably improve education standards in Cambodia and value the contributions of partners and volunteers.
