SeeBeyondBorders is proud to have received accreditation from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT), and to now be supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). The ANCP is an Australian Government initiative that supports the development activities of accredited Australian Non-Government Organisations (NGOs).
Only accredited NGOs are eligible to receive ANCP funding, and any organisation seeking funding must undergo a rigorous due diligence process and assessment of the outcomes of their development activities.
Pov Pheung, SeeBeyondBorders Country Manager in Cambodia, says, “This is a great breakthrough for our team and a credit to their professionalism. It’s hugely encouraging that an in-depth review of our program approaches and organisation has been recognised with this accreditation.
Since its establishment in 2009, SeeBeyondBorders has been committed to building sustainable operations in Cambodia, with full transparency. ANCP accreditation is recognition of the soundness of our governance, financial management, child protection, and monitoring and evaluation processes.”
SeeBeyondBorders provides in-service training in rural schools in north west Cambodia. Run by Cambodian teachers, our approach provides ongoing mentoring to ensure sustainable development of teaching skills. The effectiveness of this model was recognised when SeeBeyondBorders received a UNESCO award in 2016 for improving teaching quality. A critical feature of our programs is partnerships with local communities to improve school facilities, encourage children to come to school and value education.
Support from the Australian Government will enable SeeBeyondBorders to expand programs in Cambodia designed to improve teacher quality and enhance education outcomes for children.
