The second Covid surge is resulting in over 400,000 new cases daily in India. Asia Initiatives is helping retrofit several of the education facilities we had helped establish into Covid Care Centers with oxygen, beds, and critical medicines. We are also committed to providing long-term support to people in our projects, as the loss of lives and livelihoods will take many years to recover from, especially for families who are losing their sole breadwinners.


Asia Initiatives has just won the Jacobs Foundation Prize for our Cascade of Learning projects. We were invited to compete for this as one of the MIT SOLVERS of 2020.

"During my tenure as Secretary-General, I always worked to make women's empowerment a top priority and I can see that Asia Initiatives is carrying on that legacy."
