Letter from the Executive Director
These first three months as Executive Director of Asia Catalyst have been extremely exciting for me. I thank all of you, and our wonderful staff and Board, for the outpouring of support and inspiration during this initial, challenging period! It is especially meaningful to join the team as Asia Catalyst celebrates ten years of supporting community-based advocacy on the right to health.
Our program staff continue to work tirelessly, crisscrossing the region to train and coach grassroots project partners to strengthen their organizations, bolster advocacy efforts, and provide opportunities to build stronger advocacy coalitions and strengthen human rights knowledge and skills.
In China, we’ve provided intensive on-site training with several of our partners. We conducted advocacy coaching to the Youth LGBT Network and management coaching to the Xishuangbanna Red Ribbon Center. We also held a strategic planning workshop for 15 members of community-based organizations (CBOs) representing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, people living with HIV (PLHIV), hemophiliacs and people with disabilities.
