Who is WISE?
WISE is a non-profit organisation that acts towards a Southeast Asia that is equitable and sustainable for all. The organisation was co-founded by Dian and Yoke Pean, who wanted to create a community of Southeast Asians for Southeast Asia. Our projects are run entirely by local teams in Indonesia, Cambodia and Singapore.
Our areas of focus are water, sanitation, hygiene and waste management, though we also collaborate on causes related to public health, inclusion, education, and climate change. We run community development, capacity building and behaviour change programs in Indonesia and Cambodia, and also offer consulting services to other companies and non-profit organisations.
Why water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)?
Our founders were trained in WASH-related fields and had been involved in the sector for many years when they started WISE. WASH is the mechanism through which WISE is best able to drive equality and social justice.
Did you know that:
- Diarrhea accounts for 6% of deaths of children under five in Cambodia, despite being an almost completely preventable disease with safe access to WASH? (Countdown to 2030: Cambodia Health Data)
What do you do in Singapore?
In Singapore, we support activities in Indonesia and Cambodia through internal and external capacity building programmes. Our team of qualified and experienced trainers and facilitators develop training workshops and learning platforms that enable our colleagues and partners to develop professionally and personally.
We also support social and environment causes in Singapore through training and mentoring programmes. WISE has worked with ACRES, Bold at Work, Erth & Co., Green Nudge, Halo Health Asia, HOME: Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics, and the Institute of Technical Education.
