The Association of Southeast Asian Social Enterprises for Training in Hospitality & Catering (ASSET-H&C) is a unique network of innovative vocational training centers that promote social and economic inclusion of vulnerable people, through training and professional integration in hospitality & catering. It brings together 15 vocational training centers willing to work hand in hand to better fulfil their common mission of making a positive impact on the lives of disadvantaged youths and adults across Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam. Every year, ASSET-H&C members develop the competencies and the future of more than 2,250 trainees, including 54% female students. ASSET-H&C builds on the common grounds of these establishments and offers them opportunities to connect with comparable projects from other Southeast Asian contexts. Members are selected based on their social mission, quality of their training, their commitment to continuous improvement, and their sharing spirit. Through the network, they can broaden their perspective, share their expertise, and strengthen one another. Additionally, the network endeavors to reinforce the schools’ links with the private sector, which is critical to ensure the training remains up to speed with the market needs.
