Structure and Governance

SeeBeyondBorders’ Board of Directors ensures proper governance and guidance

SeeBeyondBorders is organised and managed as a single entity.

For legal and compliance reasons, SeeBeyondBorders comprises three legal entities; SeeBeyondBorders Australia, SeeBeyondBorders UK and SeeBeyondBorders Ireland. Each entity has its own board, local registrations and regulatory compliance requirements. SeeBeyondBorders Cambodia is a branch of the Australian entity and implements the programs to achieve the charitable objectives of the organisation. Operations in each country are complementary and adhere to shared vision, mission, values and policies. We work cooperatively to achieve the same objective; to improve the quality of learning for children in early grades education in Cambodia.
