CARE works to ensure students in Cambodia, particularly girls, are able to learn in their home language. We would like to highlight this message from Ms Audrey Azoulay, Director-General of UNESCO, which was shared to mark International Mother Language Day earlier this...
Nang Rieng* has been enjoying benefits of multilingual education (MLE) over the past years run by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS), and technically and financially supported by CARE Cambodia and Aide et Action International, respectively.
When Sev* first started school, he struggled to learn as everything was in a foreign language. He was asked to repeat Grade 1 when his school changed to the multilingual education system, allowing him to learn in his own language.
CARE’s long-term multilingual education program is helping Cambodian children like 10-year-old Peat* have brighter prospects by ensuring they have the opportunity to learn in their local language as well as in Cambodia’s national language of Khmer.
