Volunteer – Social Business TVET & Youth Employability – Hospitality & Catering Project Yangon - MYANMAR
CONTEXT L'Institut Européen de Coopération et de Développement (IECD) is a French development organization operating in the field of international solidarity. With its partners, it constructs environments that allow every person to reveal their talents, build a better future, and become a responsible actor in his/her country. Today, IECD and its local partners implement several programs for professional integration support, access to education, support to small enterprises and health care projects. IECD is active in 14 countries, in Middle East, Africa, South East Asia and Madagascar. In the countries where IECD operates, a large proportion of the population does not have access – or very little – to education. It is particularly the case for women, but also for some ethnic minorities. Being poorly qualified, sometimes illiterate and socially marginalized, these individuals are often confined in the most precarious jobs. In the countries where tourism is expanding, IECD thus chose to focus particularly on developing hospitality & catering training solutions for the underprivileged. IECD studied the feasibility of launching vocational training projects in hospitality & catering in Myanmar since 2014. As the first activities are planned for autumn 2016, IECD is looking for a volunteer to support the launch of operations.
