RESEARCH QUESTION: 2-Decent work and enterprise growth

SUB-TOPICS (Research matrix): Innovative approaches to enhance livelihoods, equity and inclusion: Social inclusion promotion (awareness raising on social inclusion in IE (4.3)

REGION - COUNTRY OF IMPLEMENTATION: Asia - Myanmar

RESUME OF LESSONS LEARNED:

There are multiple barriers limiting young people’s ability to participate, including:
-    their economic need to earn a daily income
-    parental/family pressure to work to support the family or help with domestic tasks
-    family migration/seasonal migration for work
-    lack of time to participate in training programmes
-    extreme poverty which means young people do not have any money to pay for transportation costs even for relatively small distances
-    perceptions of their own worthlessness/lack of value or stigma and discrimination, which mean they do not have the confidence to apply to participate in the first place. 

•    It is important to work closely with families from the start of a programme in order to build their understanding and acceptance of the programme and gain their support for young people’s participation. 
•    Community sensitisation at the start of a programme should be done directly by project staff and others
