What we fund
There is a lot of discussion in the philanthropic sector about “themes” such as education, healthcare, protection, vocational training, income generation and social enterprises. Rather than focusing on specific themes we look for achievable goals that produce lasting results and improve the lives of very poor Asian children and youth.
Our mission is to support the creation of lasting solutions to the basic needs of Asian children and youth.
Firetree Asia Foundation typically funds local organizations (NGOs, CBOs and social enterprises), and in specific cases we can also support Asia centered initiatives on International organizations. We fund programs with strong potential (staff, current programs, reach) in areas of strong basic need (education, health, protection, vocational training/income generation) for very poor children, youth and their families.
We support the development of a clear mission and strategic plan and long-term action plan based on a clear final goal and impact and we underwrite the costs of delivery.
