Our Approach

We work with marginalized communities, refugees, temporarily displaced people, host communities, civil society, non-governmental and community-based organizations, teachers, religious and community leaders, journalists, women, and youth to address a variety of needs including health care, education, livelihoods, peace-building, civic engagement, and vulnerability to disasters and conflicts.

Our Approach

By enhancing the capacity of individuals and existing community structures through a participatory approach, Community World Service Asia supports communities in an effort to overcome inequality and to work toward sustainable food security, peace, access to basic rights, and resilience. When necessary, emergency response is provided to disaster-affected communities.
