Philippine disasterSupporting the Development of a Food Bank Platform

Second Harvest Asia engaged Kordant to develop a resource platform that would help the public understand the issues of hunger and food banking in Asia, and how donors can best participate to help alleviate hunger and reduce food waste. Working with local food banks across Asia, the platform will also highlight data and stories that convey the unique cultural and local nuances of working in the region. In addition, Kordant is developing an outreach and promotional campaign to educate donors on the importance of supporting best practices and collaboration as the concept of a food bank sector in Asia takes shape.

Tourism Cares engaged Kordant to explore what a community-based tourism program would look like in Myanmar. Using market research and input from local leaders, advocates, and corporate leaders, Kordant helped Tourism Cares design the Myanmar Sustainable Tourism Fund to fuel work that will preserve and promote innovative practices in sustainable tourism. The Fund aims to strengthen organizations working in Myanmar, equipping local leaders with financial contributions, technical skills, and the support of volunteers with unique skills that only the travel industry can provide.
