Dropout Prevention Pilot Program Findings and Policy Dialogue Workshop
July 1, 2015

Your Excellency Im Koch, Secretary of State, Ministry of Education Youth and Sport

Excellencies, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen

It is my great pleasure to welcome all of you today to this workshop.  Giving every Cambodian child the opportunity to complete their education and reduce the number who dropout is a priority for the country.  Education is a pathway to better opportunities for every person, their community, and their nation.  That is why USAID is an important supporter of education programs around the world.  

Through SDPP, we work closely with the Ministry of Education Youth and Sport to achieve Cambodia’s Millennium Development Goal of  Universal Access to Basic Education by 2015.  We work together to increase the number of children that are able to receive quality education.  One of the key ways we do that is to help Cambodia spread the use of information communication technology – or ICT – to all levels of the school system with a particular emphasis on secondary schools.

Globally, nearly 300,000 women and over 3 million infants die each year from complications in pregnancy and birth – with unplanned pregnancies often carrying the highest risk.  Here in Cambodia, as evidenced by our last Demographic and Health Survey, 206 Cambodian women needlessly lose their lives for every 100,000 live births -- usually from preventable and treatable causes.
