Mission of Asia Initiatives
The mission of Asia Initiatives is to leverage the power of social capital to promote healthcare, education, and sustainable development to bring positive change in the wellbeing of people in underserved communities. With a focus on women and their families, AI’s initiatives utilize transformative methodologies and technologies to empower people to take charge of their own development.
The Social Capital Credits project aims to reduce poverty and generate income and food security for 450 distressed women in 10 selected villages of this region by establishing small scale poultry farming, raising nutritional levels, and developing saving habits among them.
Why We Love This Project
We love this project because Social Capital Credits are so innovative and unique, and the project will promote the idea of women making choices based on their social capital. Asia Initiatives has very good partners in the 10 villages.
