Asia Summit for Corporate Good

Asia Summit for Corporate Good

World Vision's First Asia Summit for Corporate Good concluded fruitfully yesterday. The two-day summit was held from 2 August to 3 August 2022 in a virtual format, reflecting on how corporations across the Asia Pacific region can lead sustainable change for children.

The Limitless 2022: Asia Summit for Corporate Good delivered impactful sessions and discussions, including issues of youth and inclusive economic growth, technology and education, hunger and sustainable food systems, climate change and bottom lines, and volunteerism for re-engagement.

The summit rallied around the impact that strategic partnerships with corporations can make to positively impact children and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

More than 400 corporations and NGOs, over 30 of them from Hong Kong, came together to exchange views on concrete steps they can take to address issues facing children across the Asia Pacific region, for instance, exploring possibilities of applying their resources to overcome social and economic challenges experienced by children in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

World Vision has worked across the Asia Pacific region for decades. In 2021 alone, World Vision directly impacted the lives of 18.7 million people in the region, of which 7.5 million were children.

World Vision is a global Christian humanitarian organization devoted to improving the lives of children, their families, and their communities.

World Vision has been committed to protecting and caring for those in need, particularly children. It all started when our founder Bob Pierce gave the last $5 in his pocket to help care for an abandoned Chinese girl in 1947. Through the years, World Vision has gone to where others would not. We've even reached the point of purchasing a large ship to rescue Vietnamese refugees in 1979. We believe that God is in the places where it is hardest to be a child—and we should be there too. So our mission continues to this day.
