Strengthen ICT education and learning for students with visual impairment in Cambodia to ensure an effective transfer of the special education program to the national authorities


To show skill with the information and communication technologies has become essential to ensure a good professional integration, including for visually impaired students. In view of this, Krousar Thmey wants to improve their teaching in its specialized schools. Thanks to the capacity building of teachers, the provision of equipment and the development of pedagogic resources, the foundation has now implemented courses adapted to the children’s disability.

  • Acquisition of specific skills for computer teachers
  • Computer room equipment
  • Development of educational resources

Phoan, 21, blind student at Phnom Penh Thmey School

Before joining the special school, I did not know anything about computers. When I started learning about ICT , I quickly realized that the main challenge I would have to face would be the level of English required. I remember that I felt lost: I did not know how to touch the keyboard and I had never heard of the software that allows us to read the screen.

Today, I know how to use some keys on the keyboard (I do not remember all of them yet) and I can use Youtube! What I appreciate the most now is to use Internet, Facebook and Youtube, which are very useful to follow the news, search information and find relevant lessons to go further in my studies, especially writing scripts and composing poems / songs. During my free time, I use my mobile phone to train, mainly with Facebook and Messenger applications.
