Founded in 2018, Purpose Asia-Pacific includes teams across Australia & Indonesia.
Purpose’s Asia-Pacific operation delivers regional projects and campaigns and also supports the global Purpose network. Our work includes partnerships with leading not-for-profit organisations, philanthropies, and corporations to drive impact on a variety of issues including environmental protection and climate change, education, health, international development, and the protection of democracy.
Highlights of our work include: Co-founding and incubating Reset Australia, an organisation that aims to counter digital threats to democracy; Expanding the Purpose Climate Lab to deploy innovative approaches to public mobilisation and campaigning in Indonesia and Australia; Partnering with Save the Children on a campaign incubator to increase the capacity of youth advocates in Myanmar and across the Pacific; Developing of a plastics behaviour change campaign in China with WildAid, UN Live, and the Oak Foundation; Developing a new advocacy platform for The Fred Hollows Foundation that has successfully increased funding for preventative eye health in the US and increased the demand for eye health services in India; and collaborating with the Australian Aid Sector to increase Australian support for COVID-19 relief across South East Asia and the Pacific.
Purpose’s regional Asia-Pacific hub is based in Sydney.
