Asia Catalyst envisions a world where communities have the space and capacity to effectively advocate for their rights and to bring about structural change.


Asia Catalyst promotes the rights of marginalized communities by supporting a vibrant network of advocates committed to ending stigma, discrimination, and criminalization. We strengthen civil society by providing training and resources for community based organizations to become more effective and responsive to community needs, and to conduct rigorous human rights documentation and advocacy. We work side by side with grassroots activists to ensure that their voices are fully represented in local, national, regional, and global policymaking.
