A note from Chris
In a previous update, I shared a small amount about what one of our Cambodian partners (KAPE) are achieving in the Beacon Schools Project. The success of Beacon Schools has been incredible, and the Cambodian Education Department are now planning on replicating aspects of the model across the country.
Recently, one of the Beacon Schools, 'Demonstration School', won second prize for the Best School in Cambodia at the Annual National Congress for Education. This is a phenomenal achievement! When Oaktree and KAPE partnered in the Beacon Schools Project in 2010, 'Demonstration School' had such a poor reputation, it was facing closure. With Oaktree's support, KAPE is providing access to an exceptional quality of education for Cambodian young people from poor and marginalised backgrounds.
Oaktree are very proud to support partners like KAPE who are innovating to achieve access to high quality education for those living in poverty, education that breaks poverty cycles and provides young people with incredible opportunity.
Thank you for your support in making this happen.
