Building Resiliency, Trauma Relief & Psychosocial Activities

Building Resiliency highlights the critical role of communities to withstand natural or human-induced disasters and rebuild both their foundations and infrastructures. ASA Foundation´s post-disaster response programs build the resiliency skills of vulnerable male and female youth and adults with and without disabilities to endure hardship and that adapt to misfortunes and setbacks in life.

Since 2005, ASA Foundation has been working with the U.S. Embassy, UNICEF, Caritas Germany, CRS, Muslim Aid and Handicap International across urban and rural areas of Tacloban in the Philippines (post-typhoon), Aceh (post-tsunami), together with Central and West Java (post-earthquakes) in Indonesia to provide post-disaster trauma relief and psychosocial activities followed by grass roots school and community programs designed to build resiliency, provide linkages to essential resources, and develop sustainable relationships with local government partners.

ASA Foundation delivers Trauma Relief & Psychosocial activities followed by Building Resiliency education through sustainable Training of Trainer (ToT) and Youth Development (YD) participatory learning workshops, digital learning platforms and inclusive “Edu-Sports” training activities for vulnerable male and female youth together with adult community member and teacher beneficiaries with and without disabilities in schools and communities located in disaster affected areas across South East Asia.
