📍 It all started with an idea of building a bridge!
Aspiring Asia is an initiative that aims to bring together Nordics and Asian countries’ young generation to connect, inspire, and empower each other in creating impactful changes.
We are a young pioneer NGO with amazing potential ahead. We are now growing our rapid forward-moving organization and looking for new driven team members to join us!
👋 In case we haven’t met before, here’s Aspiring Asia in a nutshell:
Aspiring Asia is all about young people being in charge, collaborating and learning from each other. Aspiring Asia initiates and supports youth-led grassroot projects to create positive social impacts through adapting and utilizing Nordics’ core strengths: Entrepreneurship, Entertainment and Education. The initiative aims to spread to 48 countries in Asia to build a community of young changemakers.
Aspiring Asia supports high-quality education, facilitates sustainable development of entrepreneurship, and increases global wellbeing and happiness. Aspiring Asia, as a platform, strives to make relevant connections to develop projects in each specific country, to support scaling of successful youth-led initiatives across Asia, with the utmost support from the Nordics.
We need your help to support the young generations of Asia to take the first steps on a global scale and achieve their goals!
