East and Southeast Asia are changing rapidly. Around the region, new nonprofit organizations are springing up to address urgent health issues, such as the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
To survive and thrive, this first generation of pioneering activists needs basic skills: strategic planning, budgeting, and staff and volunteer management. They also need the ability to document local rights issues and to advocate effectively with local officials, international donors and the United Nations.
Asia Catalyst has a rigorous and systematic approach to coaching local groups in basic survival skills. We work with our local partners one-on-one, in their offices, using tools we have developed that fit their needs. Click here to learn more.
