Since its inception in 1997 the Action Asia Foundation has promoted the idea that outdoor activities can play a crucial part in fostering an individual’s personal development. Proceeds from the Action Asia Challenge and other fundraising events go to help the work of the Foundation. The goals of the Action Asia Foundation include:
- Developing personal development opportunities for young people in Asia through organising outdoor adventure activities.
- Raising the quality of life for disadvantaged young people in Asia by funding health clinics, schools and activity centres.
- Promoting cultural interchange through adventure programmes and events.
- Developing permanent facilities for youth adventure training
The Foundations achievements so far include funding a day-care and health facilities in Nepal, and organizing kayaking, climbing and other outdoor activities for handicapped and underprivileged youth in Hong Kong.
The Action Asia Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees, who ensure that the funds raised are utilized correctly and that its programs have a positive impact on the lives of those young people taking part.
The Foundation has charity status in Hong Kong and welcomes donations. For more information on how to donate funds or volunteer with the Foundation please contact us.
