Our Board of Directors in Australia ensures proper governance and guidance
SeeBeyondBorders Australia and SeeBeyondBorders Cambodia are organised and managed as a single entity.
SeeBeyondBorders Cambodia is a branch of the Australian entity. It implements the programs to achieve the charitable objectives of the organisation. Operations in both countries are complementary and adhere to shared vision, mission, values and policies under one management structure. We work cooperatively to achieve the same objective; to improve the quality of learning for children in early grades education in Cambodia.
