Through community led development, our programs in Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam are creating stronger communities and changing lives.
By engaging with communities, we are sharing information and resources and leading sessions on topics like nutrition, hygiene and emergency preparedness. Our work is hands-on and engages all members of the community to develop sustainable solutions like water filters and sanitary toilets.
In Japan, we are using research, advocacy and outreach work to discover and develop the best disaster response and preparedness methods. We are implementing these methods in our programs throughout Asia. Our work helps communities to plan for potential emergencies. And when disaster strikes, we’re there to help communities recover.
Join the movement to build a world where there is enough for all.
