Formal agreements Formal agreements

By Ed Shuttleworth -

We are delighted to report on the signing of agreements that provide a significant step forward for SeeBeyondBorders.

Formalising arrangements with those with whom we work adds credibility to SeeBeyondBorders as an organisation. We are delighted to report on the signing of several agreements which provide a significant step forward for SeeBeyondBorders. In July, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed with Jesuit Services Cambodia who have worked with us since our inception, helping us develop our approach to working in Education. With our core capabilities and approach to working with partners much clearer, we have documented what each of us will do in our joint initiatives. This clarity has helped us develop relationships with other partners who have capabilities in education and we have now signed similar agreements with KAPE and VSO. Signing MOU with Jesuit Services Cambodia KAPE (Kampuchean Action for Primary Education) is a local NGO that has steadily grown since its establishment in Kampong Cham Province in 1998, with a mandate to advocate for improved formal education in that province. KAPE's main roles have been in Child Friendly School programming, teacher education and cluster school development. With assistance from World Education and others, KAPE has adopted more of a regional role in recent years. KAPE and SeeBeyondBorders wish to collaborate on their involvement with education related initiatives in particular schools and school clusters, through an Education Support programme. KAPE will be taking a lead role in the establishment of the SeeBeyondBorders teacher Mentor programme. VSO is a world leader in international development. Their work revolves around six development goals, including education, and their vision is that all children have access to good quality primary education. VSO volunteers support improvements in education by working in teacher training colleges and with groups of schools on developing teaching methods. SeeBeyondBorders and VSO will be collaborating on the provision of a teacher training programme which will include an 'In-School Support' programme for selected teacher groups in different provinces in Cambodia. We look forward to working closely with our partners in Cambodia to empower communities through education by helping children get to school and improving the learning that happens there.
