OUR PARTNERS

WHAT OUR PARTNERS SAY

  • "ASA Foundation has made a tremendous positive impact through their partnerships with U.S. Embassy Jakarta! By tailoring their programs to the needs of our target audiences, they have helped us reach vulnerable communities all over Indonesia for over 10 years. ASA Foundation has a valuable role to play in building the capacity and life skills of at-risk youth at the grassroots level."
    Leo Jilk, Assistant Cultural Affairs Officer, U.S. Embassy Jakarta
  • "The Social Inclusion through Sports joint project between KONAMI & Barça Foundation, and supported by the ASA Foundation as its implementing partner, was launched in Indonesia as a 1 year program in July 2017 and benefited over 10,000 children and young people, above the initial expectations. The project improved local educational capacities and provided tools for social inclusion & cohesion, transmitted positive values associated with sports among children, and fostered gender-equality and women empowerment with 47% female participants."
    Mària Vallés, General Director, Barça Foundation
  • "Through the U.S. Embassy and ASA Foundation collaboration, we have proven that playing sports teaches you how to stay focused, understand teamwork, and empowers you to challenge yourself; The value of discipline, following rules and how to tackle challenges empowers us to overcome struggles."
    Arend Zwartjes, Head of Public Affairs, U.S. Embassy Phnom Penh
  • "We have been working for almost a decade with ASA Foundation for our grassroots soccer program called "Coke Kicks", and the team is fantastic to work with.

It’s always a pleasure to work with the team from ASA Foundation."

  • "On behalf of the Embassy of the United States of America, we would like to thank ASA Foundation for their kind assistance for working with us on ‘Life Skills through American Sports’ with Muslim youth in the three southernmost provinces of Thailand from August 2014 to September 2015, as well as the ‘ASA Sports Diplomacy: No Limits, Inclusive Sports for All’ with children with disabilities in the north eastern region of Thailand from October 2018 to November 2019. The programs gave participants an opportunity to use life skills education through professional soccer and basketball development activities as a pedagogical tool to create lasting benefits in students. Our cooperation in capacity building, athletic and personal development, together with physical and physiological health was an opportunity for the Embassy to expand our outreach to broader audiences in sports. The Embassy greatly appreciates ASA Foundation´s contributions to the challenging programs' success. We look forward to continuing our cooperation on other projects of mutual interest."
    Lydia Barraza, Acting Counselor for Public Affairs, US. Embassy Bangkok
