Even with a good education, many young people in Myanmar are unemployed. The economic boom in recent years has barely improved the precarious job market.

Together with the Centre for Vocational Training (CVT), SAD is paving the way for young entrepreneurs to become independent. In customised classes and through mentoring, they acquire the necessary skills for making their business ideas reality. The guidelines help the coaches to promote active learning in their lessons. Through playful activities, debates and role-play, the young people directly apply what they have learnt. The interactive learning process promotes more in-depth engagement with the theory, and makes it easier to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
