Dana Asia aims to eradicate poverty by using social business, microfinance, and education as tools to address social problems in impoverished communities, improving access to productive resources and reducing inequalities.
Our multifaceted role
We act as a funder and adviser, partnering with local NGOs, cooperatives, and community groups to implement projects that empower communities towards sustainable impact.
As a funder
We seek funding opportunities to match emerging needs within impoverished communities. Whether private donor funds, CSR funding or grant opportunities, our team strives to match appropriate funds to the needs on the ground.
As an adviser
We use our local knowledge and experienced on-the-ground team to advise donors and implementing partners on the development of sustainable projects that fit the donor’s expectations and meet the needs of the community.
As a social business incubator
We design unique and exciting business models that address specific community needs and implement pilots through experienced in-country partners. Once the model is refined, it can be scaled to increase impact and replicated in new communities.
Sustainable impact at scale.
