Cambodia’s Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, with support from UNICEF, has unveiled the Inclusive Education Action Plan 2024-2028, aiming to provide quality education to all children, including those with disabilities.

The plan notes one in ten children globally has a disability, with nearly half of these children residing in Southeast Asia. In Cambodia, children with disabilities are three times less likely to attend school than their peers.

The new plan addresses this disparity by focusing on three primary goals: changing societal attitudes, providing necessary tools and support, and fostering collaboration among various stakeholders.

According to Ung Borath, secretary of state at the ministry, “By addressing the barriers faced by children with disabilities, we aim to create an educational system that is truly inclusive and equitable.”

The 2019 Cambodia Population Census revealed that 689,532 people aged five and up had a disability, including approximately 37,500 children aged five to fourteen.
