Asia Initiatives

SoCCs for NYCHA

In the New York Metro Area, Asia Initiatives is developing a project with the Polo Grounds NYCHA (New York City Housing Authority) public housing project that will incentivise residents to manage and maintain their public spaces, instilling a sense of safety, ownership and community that is so badly needed in the public housing.

SoCCs will encourage NYCHA residents to engage with each other by actively participating in resident meetings, volunteering to supervise children’s playground and public spaces, and helping with maintenance and advocacy activities. Such good acts will be rewarded with resources that help people improve their lives through educational opportunities, such as through upskilling, digital literacy, internships, and more.
