Details of the SEAMEO Drawing Competition 2010

Background:

In Southeast Asia, there are adults and children who cannot read nor write because they lack or have no access to educational opportunities and services.

There are many reasons why they are not able to access education. Some of them probably live in the remote areas where there is no school or learning centre, or perhaps they have special needs because of their disability. Some of them may be in difficult situations because they are from very poor families and they need to earn a living. Some may be orphans or are from ethnic minorities and unable to speak the dominant language used in school. Others may have been affected by natural calamities such as typhoons or tsunamis; and some may have been afflicted with diseases and other problems.

The educational needs of these population groups ought to be addressed. Unfortunately, many of them still remain unreached.

Committed in promoting cooperation in education, science and culture; and in providing Education For All, the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) recognizes the need to reach out and build bridges and pathways to bring quality education to every unreached individual in Southeast Asia.

The SEAMEO Drawing Competition 2010 aims to raise awareness and understanding on the difficulty of the unreached population groups and their need to access quality education. The Competition provides opportunity for Southeast Asian children to express their concern and share their vision on this important theme by demonstrating their creativity through drawing.

The Competition is open to children who are nationals of SEAMEO Member Countires, 9 - 15 years of age, and studying in a school or community learning centre in a Southeast Asian country (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor Leste and Vietnam).
