(Cambodia) Horizons Vocational Training Institute
This project responds to the cross-border trafficking of girls and women. We provide trafficking survivors and at-risk girls with primary education and 9th grade education (all within a 9-month period) so they can pass the government equivalency exam and qualify for good jobs.
The participants are provided hotel and tourism training for two years where they can each choose to study one of the following specialties:
- Reception/Front Office
- Catering: Cook’s Assistant or Buffet setup
- Housekeeping and Hotel Laundry
Fr. Kevin Conroy, a Maryknoll priest associate, places graduates in hotels that pay high salaries with benefits.
