ARCONDIS contributes to education in Myanmar CVT – Center for Vocational Training in Yangon
Founded in 2002, CVT Myanmar now has over 60 employees and more than 600 students. It is mainly financed by private Swiss citizens and foundations looking to support the economic development of the youth in Myanmar.
“With a qualified, well-founded traineeship, we increase the chances of the youth establishing themselves on the job market, ensuring a reliable source of income,” says Heini Portmann, President of CVT Myanmar. “The concept is thriving, reflected in numerous success stories. Many former CVT students have now moved on to become managers or have even founded their own companies.”
Besides the center for vocational training, the initiative also supports classes to become a trainer, young entrepreneur classes and an orientation school to help the youth from less fortunate social classes earn a school degree. As part of a longstanding partnership with the government, CVT Myanmar hopes to support the country in establishing a modern vocational training system.
