Grassroots Asia Mission Statement offers Basic Care & Education For Children and the Under-Privileged

 

 



Our Mission

Grassroots Asia identifies and empowers grassroots projects in Asia which offer a high social return on investment. Emphasis is placed on emergency relief, basic care (food, water, shelter, health care) and education for children and the under-privileged.

Our Philosophy

Grassroots Asia offers fund-raising and marketing support in the United States for grassroots efforts by individuals and organizations in Asia which address child welfare, basic care and emergency relief. Special consideration is given to projects which are self-sustaining, aid the most vulnerable, and offer creative solutions to those in need. Care, compassion, and hard work in the spirit of selfless service must be demonstrated by all applicants who receive funding.

To identify partner organizations in Asia and assess programs, staff makes regular visits to established and new projects. The organization consults regularly with project leaders and knowledgable sources in Asia and the United States. 100% of all donations are applied to project funds selected by the donor. Administrative costs are provided for by specific grant requests.

Grassroots Asia keeps donors, foundations and corporate supporters informed of current project developments by posting the latest information on this website. Our periodic newsletter for donors, On the Ground, is also mailed out.

Grassroots Asia strongly supports the concepts of self-governance, self-empowerment, and self-sufficiency in an environment of respect, love, and individual human rights. Grassroots Asia does not advocate any one religious belief and feels that individuals have the right to determine their own spiritual path.
