Health, Safety, Hygiene, Sanitation & COVID-19 Prevention

All ASA Foundation education program activities promote healthy behaviours and well-being across all youth and adult ages that is essential for sustainable development.

Although substantial progress has been made in increasing access to clean drinking water and sanitation worldwide, billions of people, especially in rural areas, still lack these basic services.

By collaborating with partners such as the UN agencies, British Embassy, U.S. Embassy, F.C. Barcelona Foundation, Boehringer Ingelheim, Combiphar, KONAMI, Mercy Corps, RYTHM Foundation, Save the Children and Takeda, ASA Foundation’s sustainable program methodology aims to improve health, hygiene and sanitation awareness and education for vulnerable youth and young adults across disadvantaged urban and rural areas that subsequently, and most importantly, saves lives. The project activities specifically address and transform healthy behaviour education through Training of Trainer (ToT) and Youth Development (YD) participatory learning workshops, digital online learning platforms and inclusive Edu-Sports coaching development modules to male and female youth together with young adult teacher and community member beneficiaries.

ASA Foundation COVID-19 Prevention & Hygiene Awareness Program

The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the critical importance of sanitation, hygiene and adequate access to clean water for preventing and containing diseases. Hand hygiene saves lives. Therefore, in response to Indonesia’s coronavirus deaths surging to become the highest in South East Asia, ASA Foundation has launched a digital online COVID-19 Prevention & Hygiene Awareness learning platform to urgently educate and empower over 10,000 vulnerable junior high school students locked down in communities across West Java for the RYTHM Foundation supported Social Intervention project.

By focusing on key Health, Hygiene and Sanitation information, and taking into consideration gender equality, diversity and inclusion, the sustainable project improves access to COVID-19 education for youth and families that builds resiliency in communities until schools reopen. And, most importantly, the program aims to save lives.

Supported by local governments, ASA Foundation is hoping to launch the digital application globally. Discussions with potential donors across South East Asia, and in countries such Brazil and India, who have been hit hard by the pandemic, are currently taking place.
