Giving Back by Destination Asia
Giving Back is a socially responsible group-initiative created in 2011 by Destination Asia to connect people and make a positive impact in the destinations where we operate. Giving Back is the name under which Destination Asia operates each of its CSR projects within their 11 destinations. Every year, each country sets aside a budget of US$5,000 specially to fund socially responsible projects. How these funds are distributed depends on the specifics of each project. A CSR representative within each country is assigned to work closely and connect the team with a selected local charity or enterprise, with the scope of projects in recent years varying greatly.
Our projects aim to build beneficial, long-term relationships that contribute to the improvement of livelihoods while preserving our planet’s fragile ecosystem. We will continue to support education, community development, health and medical improvements, environmental initiatives, disaster relief and provide any urgent assistance that local communities may require. Our future steps aim not only to give back, but empower the people of these communities to build their own future through education, training and confidence building. Together we have been able to multiply the impact of individual efforts to transform lives, communities and the planet.
Giving Back leads this effort with innovative programs and partnerships by combining human collaboration and networked connections. Throughout Asia our employees continue to generously donate their talent, time, and compassion. They serve as volunteers in their communities or give to nonprofits, and Destination Asia embraces their enthusiasm to help change the world.
