Enable the socio-professional integration of underprivileged young people and adults in Southeast Asia
Improve the training offering in hospitalitycatering training in Southeast Asia
As the ASSET-H&C’s motto says: “alone we go faster, but together we go further”. I now feel that the IHHVTC is no longer alone! We can share our experiences, exchange resources, and work hand-in-hand to build a better future for the young people of Southeast Asia.”

The ASSET-H&C Platform in Southeast Asia
Since 2002, the IECD has supported a certain number of vocational training schools and centers in Southeast Asia that offer training in hospitality-catering careers with a view to openings in sustainable professions.
The IECD’s experience in Southeast Asia has helped to become aware of the shared challenges for Hospitality-Catering schools and, in 2016, it took the initiative to create a regional mutual support network: the ASSET-H&C network (Association of hospitality-catering social training enterprises in Southeast Asia). It now has 14 member schools in five countries and enables the sharing of experiences, the pooling of resources, the promotion of good practices and, ultimately, the improvement of the results of each of the schools. Thus, every year, about 2,200 young people and adults in difficult economic, social and/or educational situations benefit from high quality training that helps them towards social and professional integration.
The members of the 14 partner schools from the ASSET-H&C network
met in Siem Reap, Cambodia, in December 2017.
- 1400 young people attended training at our member schools, 54% of whom were girls
- 21 trainers received training to enhance their pedagogical skills
- 12 training centers in the network.
