Cambodian youth (those aged 15 to 30) make up about 30% of the country’s population. Most of this group end up working in jobs that are dangerous, exploitative, or simply not aligned with their skills. With little to no access to information about the job market or appropriate career guidance counselling, they usually make wrong decisions and end up as an obsolete resource in the labour market. Based in Siem Reap, the Better Futures Programme supports Cambodian youth who are in a transitional period between basic and further or higher education. JWOC’s theory of change is that providing education at critical points of transition allows youth to acquire the means and foster the motivation for both personal and community development.
