Event description

Description

You are invited to Asia Initiatives’ exciting annual gala, featuring once again the 8th UN Secretary General who will confer the 'Ban Ki-moon Award for Women's Empowerment.' You will have a chance to interact with our honorees and discuss their cutting edge ideas and accomplishments.

This year is extra exciting as we celebrate 20 years of Asia Initiatives! What started in 1999 as a dream to strengthen under-privileged communities using social capital has expanded to over 25 projects in 3 continents, impacting more than 50,000 women and their families.

Join us as we celebrate the women in our projects whose creativity and resilience lifts themselves and their families out of poverty and transforms their communities.

More information about our work is at www.asiainitiatives.org

Pictures from last year's gala are here.
