In addition to this we directly run a number of different activities and projects, all seeking to impact on global poverty. These center around a few specific themes.
Our focus is on supporting our Chapters and members within them to take forward projects, studies or research which they deem is of priority impact to them.
Global Impact Fund for Technology (GIFT) – To secure the future of human civilization, we must urgently reduce emissions, fast. To achieve this, many kinds of effective green innovations must be rapidly developed and deployed worldwide.
ASAP is proud to manage a portfolio of awards. Each fund we are responsible for has a specific theme or focus. We are immensely grateful to our partners and sponsors for their support, without them this important strand of our work would not be possible.
