OUR MISSION

ASIA considers the traditions, culture and historical heritage of the peoples of the Asian continent, and particularly of Tibet and the Himalayan region, a priceless treasure to be safeguarded and handed on to future generations through the engagement of communities in sustainable development processes.
In particular, ASIA shares the values of peace, respect and tolerance found in the cultural and spiritual tradition of Tibet, and regards these traditions as a heritage of all humankind.

OUR VALUES

ASIA is a humanitarian organization working for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and in accordance with the principles of the Universal Declaration and the European Convention on Human Rights. ASIA works in favour of people in need of aid, without distinction of race, faith, religion or nationality.

ASIA is an independent organization, non-profit and apolitical.

ASIA operates in respect of cultural diversity and intervenes to enhance and safeguard local traditions, artistic heritage and traditional sciences to disseminate its knowledge in civil society.

In carrying out its projects, ASIA believes in the active participation of beneficiaries and involves the local communities in identifying constraints and in planning and managing the sustainability of the projects.

ASIA acts in respect of natural ecosystems by using materials and technologies with low environmental impact.

ASIA believes in the importance of universal education, a fundamental right and indispensable opportunity for all children. Education enables access to improved living conditions and ensures respect for the cultural integrity of a population.

ASIA chooses quality over quantity so it focuses on a limited number of projects by employing expert and motivated professionals who operate in compliance with the values of the association and the beneficiary populations.

Transparency and accountability are the pivotal points of the financial and economic management of ASIA.
