Resuming a physical presence in Pacific Island countries in 2021, The Asia Foundation builds on decades of on-the-ground experience in the region. Areas of focus include supporting locally led reforms on governance and accountability; partnering with local NGOs and government agencies to reduce gender-based violence and advance women’s leadership and agency; strengthening disaster risk management capacity; enhancing digital economic opportunities and cybersecurity; and advancing leadership development. Additionally, the Foundation is distributing books to schools, non-government and government agencies through our Books for Asia program, and is planning to support local language digital and print children’s books though our Let’s Read initiative.
