With one quarter of the population between the ages of 10 and 24, the demand in Southeast Asia for education and economic opportunity is greater than ever. EDC’s efforts in Indonesia, the Philippines, and the Lower Mekong to create meaningful opportunities for youth by aligning public, private, education, and industry partners have been successful, reaching hundreds of thousands of young people.

EDC is also improving elementary and basic education for younger children though high-quality literacy programs, teacher professional development, and policy implementation. And we are fighting drug abuse and HIV/AIDS through programs that help people develop the knowledge and behaviors they need to chart a long, healthy future.
