Program areas at The Asia Foundation

Governance and law - informed by six decades of experience and deep local expertise, the asia foundation's governance program supports asian initiatives to build more effective and responsive governance, accessible justice mechanisms, a vibrant civil society, and an informed and engaged citizenry. We are a longstanding partner of both government and civil society in asia, supporting initiatives to build more effective and responsive governance that expands justice, accelerates social and economic development, and promotes peace and security. The foundation promotes good governance and reform at all levels through programs that counter corruption, support parliamentary and constitutional development, and foster an active civil society sector.

Books for asia puts brand-new books and digital content into the hands of students, educators, and leaders in 20 countries to increase their access to valuable information. Through technology and book donations, we infuse students with a love of reading essential for literacy; build knowledge in the business, legal, and science professions; sharpen vocational and research ability; and enhance language skills to participate in the global economy. Our digital initiative-let's read-creates, translates, and delivers educational content to children any time, any place, in languages they use at home and school, dramatically improving access. While print remains an effective means of delivering information in many parts of the developing world, e-books are fast becoming a cost-effective, scalable model given mobile technology's increasing affordability.

Women's empowerment program - for more than 60 years, the asia foundation has empowered women and girls across the asia-pacific region. Through our women's empowerment program, we have transformed the lives of thousands of women and girls through evidence-based programs that focus on three key areas: expanding women's economic opportunities, increasing women's rights and security, and advancing women's political participation. The women's empowerment program also pursues an integrated approach that promotes gender equality across all foundation programs.
