According to the project document, since 2012, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) has engaged with the Government of Myanmar to help formulate and implement education reforms, particularly in secondary education and technical and vocational education and training (TVET).
The Equipping Youth for Employment Project (EYE) the first ADB loan for Myanmar's education sector aims to strengthen the country's education and skills base and promote inclusive growth and job creation. It supports reforms to realign secondary education and TVET to Myanmar's evolving workforce needs. These reforms are vital to equip youth with skills for employment in a modern economy and meet employer skill demands.
The project's impact will be education and skills base for inclusive growth enhanced, and its outcome will be secondary education subsector and TVET realigned to evolving labor force needs and equitably expanded. It has three outputs:
(i) policy frameworks and capacities for cohesive, workforce-responsive secondary education subsector and TVET enhanced;
(ii) new secondary education subsector curriculum delivered and access expanded; and
(iii) new TVET programs introduced and access expanded.
The project's total cost is $105.0 million, with $98.5 million financed by a loan from ADB.

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
