Increased growth & diversification of the Cambodian economy

Cambodian economy has an annual growth of 7% GDP, to maintain this growth the country needs a highly capable workforce with a new skill-set and increased job readiness.

Employers unable to fill positions with qualified candidates

With the diversification of the Cambodian economy away from traditional farming, it is increasingly difficult for employers to highly qualified employees.

Covid impacted and disrupted higher education

Over the last 2 years, Covid 19 negatively impacted not only the economy but also higher education, and limited work-based learning opportunities for students.

Let's work together

1000 Internships Campaign aims to provide 1000 Cambodian university students with a paid 3 months internship opportunity in the next 12 months, with a minimum of 50% of all placements being filled by young women.

How does it work?

We are asking the private sector, civic society organizations to pledge the number of paid internship positions they will create within the next 12 months in their company.
