Despite improvements in Cambodia's education system - due largely to reforms and increased government spending since 2001 - significant challenges remain, in particular a lack of access and low quality. These problems are felt most acutely in remote and rural areas, and by marginalized groups such as the poor, ethnic minorities, and girls. USAID's Improved Basic Education in Cambodia Project seeks to address these issues of access and quality through an approach that emphasizes holistic programming, stakeholder-driven development, and improved educational relevance and management. This project builds upon the solid experience gained by USAID and implementing partner World Education over the past five years, through the successful Educational Support for Children in Underserved Populations program and the Schools for Life program.
