SpeakerName: Mr. Chanveasna Chin & Mr. Socheat Lam

Description: This presentation shared the common approach, which focuses on four specific objectives (Access, Quality, Capacity Building and Research/Advocacy) across five components: (1) Children with disabilities; (2) Street children; (3) Over-age children; (4) Ethnic minority children; and (5) Poor and remote children. This presentation also shared that CCOSC mainstreams three cross-cutting themes on gender, disability and education in emergencies. It is noted that the consortium has good foundations for success given that it operates around established structures and regroups core similarities in partners’ implementation and design facilitated by the local context.This presentation also reported how Aide et Action, in partnership with 20 partner organisations in Cambodia, and with the financial support from Educate A Child and partners, has enrolled and retained 33,409 OOSC as of 2015, with 46% being girls in formal or non-formal education system.
