Announcement Description

NGO Education Partnership (NEP) is a membership organization that coordinates dialogue and cooperation among key stakeholders to improve the quality and accessibility of education in Cambodia.

Since 2002, the NGO Education Partnership (NEP) has been a strong voice in education policy discourse in Cambodia by being a representative of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) working in the education sector in Cambodia. Over the years, even though the CSO landscape has changed a lot in Cambodia, NEP's representation and membership base has only grown in strength. At present NEP has a total of 128 member organizations, out of which 84 are local NGOs (LNGO) and 44 International NGOs (INGOs).

NEP in cooperation with Oxfam Denmark was granted by Education Out Loud (EOL) of the Global Partner for Education (GPE) to implement the project “strengthening the quality of education policy dialogue and delivery through CSO inclusion, participation, communication and capacitation”.

NEP is now looking for a Project Coordinator (full-time) to be responsible for day-to-day planning, management, and reporting.
