Around the world, Asia Catalyst and our grassroots partners are adjusting to new political realities and legal challenges, and taking creative steps to ensure that civil society groups are not undermined. As we celebrate Chinese New Year and embark on the Year of the Rooster, we are working around the clock to ensure a seamless flow of support to our partners on the ground.
Below are some of our recent accomplishments.
- In China, we worked closely with local groups to organize “town hall” consultations with diverse transgender groups and individuals from around the country. This process feeds into the development of a unique training curriculum, based on lived experience, to build leadership and increase advocacy capacity on trans rights issues.
- In Bangkok, we brought together 13 graduates of our CBO Catalyst in-depth training cohort to an Action Assembly to promote coalition building and strengthen human rights advocacy capacity. Seventy-seven community advocates participated on our bi-monthly call on sexuality education. See a summary of that webinar, below.
