Asia Foundation Leverages SCM4Good to Facilitate Aid Efforts After Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda

Aidmatrix partner, The Asia Foundation, is helping the Tacloban community replenish its educational resources following Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda. The Asia Foundation’s ‘Books for Asia’ program recently transported more than 8,000 children's books to Tacloban in the Philippines.

"The book donation event, arranged by the Foundation’s Books for Asia program with support from American publishers and the Australian Government, donated over 8,702 children’s books to 11 elementary schools in the typhoon-ravaged city." - Anna Bantug-Herrera, The Asia Foundation’s associate director in the Washington, D.C., office, in her recent Notes from the Ground blog.

The Asia Foundation launched 9 locations on SCM4Good in just 6 short months in 2013. Aidmatrix's SCM4Good is helping facilitate their Books for Asia program that moves “nearly one million brand-new books into the hands of students, educators, and local and national leaders in 19 countries annually," according to The Asia Foundation.
