Founded over 20 years ago, Partners Asia has provided funding and technical support to determined local groups in SE Asia, mostly along the Thai-Myanmar/Burma border and in remote communities in Thailand. We believe that struggling communities and their trusted leaders have the right to determine solutions and drive change. We learn from local leaders. We invest in systemic change and give flexible, often long-term funding to our partners. We value trust, learning, accompaniment, deep listening, compassion, and mutual accountability. Our partners’ work in areas not limited to education, women’s empowerment, LGBTQI+ rights, emergency assistance, independent media, and community development.
