Deadline: March 8, 2015 | Views: 100
Type: Fully Funded
Date: 2nd – 29th August 2015
The ASEAN Youth Volunteer Programme is replicating in Cambodia through a joint partnership between Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) and Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP), in collaboration with USAID, ASEAN Secretariat, Ministry of Youth and Sports, Malaysia, Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, Cambodia, and UN Volunteers.
For 1 month, 50 volunteers will be equipped with leadership competencies through workshops and hands-on activities as they work each other and local communities to discover the ASEAN identity and the role that ASEAN youth can play in the community, with a specific focus on the environment. On site, they will engage the Krakor Floating Village in projects related to water sanitation, personal hygiene and waste management. When they head back to their home countries, they are expected to carry out their own community projects that will contribute to the conservation of ASEAN’s environment. Successful proposals will be awarded seed grants with a maximum value of USD2,000.00.
