Where Mentors Come Together To Create A Better World

Welcome to VOICES OF ASIA!

Your support in the past 7 years has allowed us to help many people manage transitions and challenges. We started with storytelling in 2010 as our leader volunteers inspire through the retelling of their personal stories. In 2017, we went on to create the Mentoring Project that lets us support individuals and impact lives one mentee at a time.

Starting 2016, many organizations have also given us a chance to support their talent management projects. Progress takes place when leaders make the decision to take a stand. Voices Of Asia offers all we can to support you on this transition.

We hope that more of you will step forward to become mentors so we can truly impact lives together. Reach out to us at contact@voicesofasia.org. We would love to connect. Thank you.
