Asia Impact Center

Our Asia Impact Center, strategically located in Chiang Mai, Thailand, a hub of Southeast Asia, enables our training teams to easily reach those needing help.

Why Asia?

Along with rapid economic growth, Asia’s population is also growing. But, more than 300 million of its people still live on less than $2 per day. In fact, this global region represents more than half of the world’s poor.

And, beyond economic obstacles, rice production has slowed to historic lows and increasing water scarcity is slowing food production across the board. Additionally, more than half of the world’s stunted children live in Asia.

By locating our Impact Center in the heart of Southeast Asia, we’re training its poorest to take hold of their future and support themselves, their families, and their communities.
