Description and results


This project is part of CIDA's International Youth Internship Program (IYIP), funded by the Government of Canada's Youth Employment Strategy (YES). The IYIP contributes to the YES by providing a large spectrum of Canadian graduates with valuable international development work experience abroad.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: (i) increased awareness among female and male Canadian youth of the equal possibility of working internationally; (ii) enhanced equal employability of female and male International Youth Internship Program (IYIP) interns in Canada and in the field of international development; (iii) improved capacity of female and male IYIP interns to contribute to international development in a gender-sensitive way.

Results achieved

Results achieved at the end of the project (March 2014) include: 1) In Cambodia, the interns developed an extensive instructional manual for the local organisation's staff, which highlights the complexities of behaviour change; and 2) in Indonesia, the interns worked with the local organisation's staff and provided training on data collection and analysis with regard to the partner’s natural farming experiments that resulted in the documentation of proven techniques and the compilation of training materials. The interns acquired new skills and abilities that will increase their employability such as: project management and understanding of RBM concepts, new languages, communication and presentation skills, cultural awareness, real-world experience designing and implementing water filters, and project design and cost estimation.
