Organization to improve communication and swallowing therapy services in Cambodia (OIC Cambodia) is a local non-government organization working in the field of speech therapy. Our vision is to support the development of a speech therapy profession led by Cambodians and available to all who need it. We have the mission to establish speech therapy university courses and jobs for Cambodians, raise awareness, and influence government policy.
In 2022-23 OIC has had 2 funded projects which have partnered with the social service workforce and local communities across within 4 provinces in Cambodia.
Project 1: Family Care First project (USAID funds) “Enhancing Service Provision and Child Protection Response for Children with disabilities through specialist skill-building for supporting children with communication and swallowing difficulties” implemented in Kampot, Kompong Speu and Kompong Chnang.
Project 2: World Childhood Foundation , OIC implemented the project “Protecting and raising the voice of children with communication disabilities” with information gathered from Siem Reap and Kompong Chnang.
Within these 2 projects we had substantial scoping activities conducting interviews with local authorities, government stakeholders and families of people with communication disabilities. The findings from these activities have informed past and current project design and practice. Currently, we have some internal summaries, reports and various level of analysis of this data, however, we do not have a summary in a shareable form for publishing on our website or with partners. We are looking for a summary report to highlight overall key findings with supporting quotes (referencing source docs). This report is essential for consolidating key learnings and providing both our own staff with key messages as well as for sharing with others to support their highlighting of the need for targeted support for people with communication disabilities throughout Cambodia’s systems.
The purpose of this consultancy is to support the OIC team to consolidate and share key findings of 2 years of engaging with the social service sector (child protection and community social work) in a number of Cambodian provinces.
