Hospitality Vocational Training, Myanmar

by Association Francois-Xavier Bagnoud - FXB International


Access to vocational training is crucial for obtaining sustainable jobs, thereby reducing the vulnerability of future generations. Tourism in Myanmar is booming, but the lack of qualified staff is obvious. The project trains 25 vulnerable youth per year in hospitality and sustainable tourism and develops their life skills, so that they can access fair and sustainable income. The project also provides free training to hospitality structures in the region to develop global competencies.

total goal


In Myanmar, the vocational training (VT) sector is badly developed, resulting in unskilled workforce entering the labour market, affecting both the industry in terms of productivity and competitiveness, and society in terms of underdevelopment and poverty. Furthermore, there are key barriers that prevent access to vocational training, especially for the most vulnerable: indirect costs, lack of facilities, and inadequate academic preparedness.


The project provides free vocational training in a booming sector (hospitality) to vulnerable youth that would not have access to this kind of opportunities otherwise for lack of financial means and of available facilities. The training includes theoretical courses and practical internships. We couple the vocational training with other services provision like transportation, balanced lunch, monthly allowance, to committ students in participating in the program and with life skills development.

Long-Term Impact

We train 25 vulnerable youth per year, allowing them to find a sustainable job in the tourism industry, to get a stable income and to live their life with dignity thanks to their global empowerment, including life skills development. Furthermore, we provide free training and life skills development to hospitality structures' staff in the region, increasing the global competencies in the tourism sector near Ngapali (Rakhine State).
