URI Asia is our network’s fastest growing region. With Cooperation Circles in India, Pakistan and Korea, URI Asia connects interfaith organizations and helps mobilize thousands of local civilians to address large issues of poverty, the rights of women and children, violence, infanticide and caste discrimination.

Current initiatives include empowering the role of women in both India and Pakistan, economic justice for indigenous populations, and youth programs in Pakistan, South Korea, and India. URI Asia has formed an Executive Committee and legal entity, called URI Asia Trust, to formalize their work together as a team.
