Local community engagement is critical to the success of this project and is very much an on-gong focus of its implementation. Community members need to understand and appreciate the long-term benefits of the training, and why it is critical that the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the community can access training and work opportunities.
The project seeks to provide equal opportunity for women and men and is inclusive of people with disabilities. We are also working with ethnic minority groups to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate training and work opportunities.
In terms of capacity building and collaboration the project is delivered in collaboration with the Ministry of labour and Vocational Training and in partnership with local NGO Krouser Yoeung.
Neouy is 21 years old, and lives with her parents and younger siblings in a rural village in Ratanak Kiri province, Cambodia. She has had difficulty moving since her left leg was damaged during an illness when she was 3 years old. Since completing training in make-up skills through Plan International and Krousar Yoeung’s project, Youth Vocational Training, Neouy says this is the happiest time in her life.
This project will continue until June 2017.
