According to ADB website, ADB is working with the Lao People's Democratic Republic to increase opportunities for young women to access technical and vocational education. The project is providing training for women who want to work in traditionally male occupations.
The project will continue to support efforts to realign technical and vocational education and training (TVET) with current and future labor market needs by (i) upgrading teaching and learning environments at eight vocational colleges, (ii) strengthening teachers’ competencies to deliver student-centered practical training in skill areas that are in demand, and (iii) improving the management of colleges and fostering an environment that demonstrates the principles of entrepreneurship and promotes involvement of companies and communities in TVET. The project will increase poor and disadvantaged students’ access to TVET through targeted direct stipends and more dormitory spaces at colleges. The project will also undertake TVET promotion measures to improve the public image of TVET and enhance understanding of TVET products and services among youth, their parents, and communities.
This project is associated to two closed projects (ADB-42278-012 and ADB-42278-023).

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
