<h6><span style=”color: #11568c;”>PROJECT
Krousar Thmey has always been strongly mobilized to change mentalities through awareness-raising actions, aimed at promoting the identification of children with disabilities, facilitating their access to appropriate structures and encouraging their proper integration in harmony with their peers. The increasing involvement of the Ministry of Education with the transfer of specialized schools to the Cambodian educational authorities, suggests that the awareness of the general public as well as actors of the education system and the job market may soon be undertaken by the authorities themselves. In the meantime, Krousar Thmey wants to support them in setting up an effective awareness program for the benefit of schoolchildren and the entire population with disabilities.
- Introduction conferences of sensory disabilities in universities
- Awareness-raising roadshow
- Family support with registration
- Inclusive or integrated class openings in public schools in remote areas
