Community World Service Asia

Community World Service Asia is a regional organization implementing humanitarian and development initiatives throughout Asia. We aim to address factors that divide people by promoting inclusiveness, shared values, diversity, and interdependence. Marginalized communities are assisted irrespective of race, faith, color, age, sex, economic status, or political opinion. Respecting the right to choose how to live, we work with marginalized communities in order for them to overcome inequality and lead peaceful, dignified and resilient lives.

Community World Service Asia has been present in the region since 1954 and is a registered organization with Governments and Networks.
Our focus areas include: disaster management; education; health; livelihoods; peace and democracy; WASH; quality and accountability. We engage in the self-implementation of projects, cooperation through partners, and provision of capacity building trainings and resources at national, regional and global levels.
