Testimony of Philippe BÉS
Director of Sala Baï, an ASSET-H&C member in Siem Reap, Cambodia

It is always beneficial to take a step back from everyday school life and exchange ideas with people working in the same sector. This seminar provided the opportunity to go even further and adopt a strategic vision of our mission. After these two days, I have a better understanding of our main challenges, such as the integration of ASEAN recommendations into our training syllabuses. Sharing good practices is a particularly enriching and fruitful exercise, in particular via the workshops designed, for example, to increase the amount of self-funding for our projects. I want to thank the IECD for taking the initiative to create this network and for the excellent organization of this meeting. I look forward to participating in future meetings and, in the long term, to being involved in common projects.

Testimony of Aung Phyoe Min
Vice-Principal of the IHHVTC, an ASSET-H&C member in Inle, Myanmar

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.
