By adrien

Description du poste (profil):
The EU Aid Volunteers initiative provides opportunities to European citizens and long-term residents, from a wide range of backgrounds and with a diversity of skills and professional experience, to get involved in humanitarian aid projects, support the provision of needs-based humanitarian aid in third countries and engage in volunteering opportunities, through deployment.Cambodia is a thriving country with 7% annual economic growth in 2015 and as such the country is now transitioning to a lower middle income status. However, the country still faces many obstacles as part of its development process. With 51% of its population under the age of 25 years old, many such challenges are faced by the country’s youth. High drop-out rates from main stream education by youth has led to many young people lacking tangible skills to gain meaningful employment opportunities leaving them at risk of exploitation and human trafficking. For those that do find employment, it is often in low skilled jobs with high risk of sexual gender-based violence against women, and labour rights abuses for youth in general.As a result, ACTED is working to :- reduce the risk of sexual gender-based violence against female hostesses in Phnom Penh;- improving labour law compliance in the Cambodian hospitality sector- providing access to innovative Non-Formal Education to vulnerable youth in the province of Prey Veng.
