Organization Background:

Kampuchea Action to Promote Education (KAPE) is the largest local NGO in Cambodia's education sector. We are a nonprofit organization that implements projects and research at all levels of the sector, with beneficiaries in primary schools, secondary schools, and tertiary programs. KAPE’s primary development objective focuses on promoting improvements in the formal education system in 3 main areas: (i) Educational Access, (ii) Educational Quality, and (iii) Governance. Based on the agency’s experience, investment in access and quality often has only muted effects if educational institutions lack good governance and accountability; thus, KAPE’s primary objective focuses on improving good governance in schools as the linchpin to our strategy to improve educational access and quality.


Project Background:

Improving Digital Education for All Learners (IDEAL) is a 3-year project (Apr/2024-Dec/2026 that describes a set of program interventions that are designed to promote digital education in 12 state schools that are located at multiple levels, including primary, lower secondary, and upper secondary. The project proposes a rights-based approach to not only increase students’ digital skills but also promote the regular use of technology in students’ everyday learning (known as ICT in Education), particularly where this concerns literacy and numeracy. The project will build on the extensive work already done by KAPE and others in the area of digital education and will bring to bear many cutting-edge digitally based learning programs in Khmer Language, Mathematics, and English. In addition to significant investments in computer labs and 21st Century Libraries with M-learning services, the project will also create an operating environment that is conducive to high utilization of these investments including the use of school-based mentors to support teachers, support for children’s/student councils to ensure students have a voice in project operation, and management support for school directors. The project will also promote the adoption of policies that promote digital learning as well as community engagement in these changes at the local school to increase parents’ awareness of digital learning opportunities and ensure their support in a post-project environment.
