How we Work
Comprehensive, Local Solutions for Disaster Resilience.
At Give2Asia, we believe that natural hazards do not have to lead to disasters. Our comprehensive approach to disaster programming prioritizes risk-reduction activities to help local communities become more resilient to a changing climate.
HOW IT WORKS
Give2Asia has responded to over 40 disaster events since 2001 across Asia-Pacific. Our approach offers a way for donors to have greater impact by funding a multi-tiered disaster strategy that prioritizes local solutions and long-term impact through preparedness, relief, and long-term recovery. We are there before, during, and after a disaster to support communities in becoming more resilient to a changing climate.
- Preparedness: The best way to minimize destruction following a disaster is to implement activities and systems that prepare communities to respond effectively during a disaster event. Give2Asia has been implementing the NGO Disaster Preparedness Program since 2014 to build disaster resilient communities across Asia.
- Relief: When a disaster does hit, Give2Asia is on the ground gathering information and assessing needs within the first 24 hours. Our in-country field staff and vetted non-profits in every country we work provides a ready network for companies to make local impact in the immediate aftermath of a disaster
- Long-term Recovery: It takes months, sometimes years, for communities to recover from a disaster. Long after the headlines fade, Give2Asia is there to support long-term recovery needs after relief funding dries up.
