Asian Aid’s programs are designed to empower all children and their families irrespective of ethnicity, gender, religion, race or political conviction.
To ensure our impartiality and unbiased support for all children, Asian Aid does not engage in politics or evangelism in any of the projects or activities we support.
In line with our vision and mission, Asian Aid is working in close partnership with Adventist communities and like-minded partners across India, Nepal and Bangladesh to see children, their families and communities reach their God-given potential.
Asian Aid has chosen to partner with the following humanitarian agencies to address some of the most pressing needs these countries face.
Helping Hand Welfare Society (HHWS)
HHWS has been implementing child sponsorship programs and initiatives across the network of Adventist schools in India since 1978. HHWS’ mission is to ensure access to quality education for children, their families, and communities through programs that support their holistic development. By providing access to all levels of education (Kindergarten through to Tertiary), HHWS ensures children and young adults have the tools they need to access learning and support throughout their academic journey. HHWS’ programs have continued to grow in recent years through the design of child-focused school development programs. These programs ensure children, and their families are accessing quality education through partner Adventist schools, extracurricular and life skills programs, and livelihood training opportunities to support their individual and collective well-being.
