The best Asian agents

East Meets West aims to transform the health, education and communities of disadvantaged people in Asia by building partnerships, developing opportunities and creating sustainable solutions. East Meets West delivers innovative solutions to difficult development problems faced by poor families and communities in Asia. Their core program work is in the areas of education, healthcare, clean water and sanitation, and infrastructure and reflects our commitment to removing the barriers that prevent people from enjoying life’s fullest opportunities. Nearly six million individuals have benefited from these high-impact, sustainable, cost-efficient programs.

Children living in rural poverty lag far behind their urban counterparts in access to education and the chance to pursue improved life opportunities. East Meets West’s learning programs provide a comprehensive response to this common development problem, helping children from poor families gain a solid education. At the same time, people living in poverty may lack access to even the most basic medical care.  Through their medical programs, they provide direct assistance to individuals, support families, train medical staff and improve systemic capacity by developing and constructing improved medical facilities.
