THE CAMBODIAN SCHOOL OF PROSTHETICS AND ORTHOTICS: CSPO

a year in cspo.PNG

OVERVIEW                            

Our collaboration with, and support from the Royal Government of Cambodia has developed further and there has been greater interaction between Exceed and another partner organisation, The Persons with Disability Foundation. 

Our three clinics continue to provide comprehensive physical rehabilitation services, free of charge, to those most in need. Our community development programme including community-based rehabilitation is ongoing as a core project in Cambodia, and it is a great example of what equipping, enabling and empowering is all about: using technology to access education, jobs and to build a more fulfilling life.

The course at the faculty of Prosthetic & Orthotic Engineering (formerly CSPO) gives students the privilege of serving fellow Cambodians and of equipping them to participate in life more fully. We are pleased to report that our inclusion under the National Institute of Social Affairs and the upgrade of the course from diploma to degree level, will bring P&O education in Cambodia into alignment with other ASEAN countries.

Exceed worldwide remains committed to Cambodia and the support of education and development. We are committed to serving ordinary people, especially those who do not have the means to pay for their rehabilitation.
