About Us

Mobilising. Partnering. Transforming. Pioneering.

Asian Outreach (AO) is a Christian, non-governmental organization that has been empowering and transforming the lives of families in needy communities across Asia for more than 40 years. Operating in 18 countries across the continent, AO works with local partners to bring holistic and sustainable development to the most vulnerable areas.

We act as catalysts for change – we focus on the training and support of national workers – as they are best equipped to effect change within their own communities. Our programs include effective humanitarian efforts, including AIDS/HIV programs, medical, dental and relief work, literacy programs, community-based health and education programs, micro-enterprise and other practical programs to raise the quality of life.

Our Mission

Asian Outreach New Zealand exists to support the local church and partners in Asia to transform their communities through spiritual impact, holistic community development and economic empowerment. Our influence will be Relevant, Relational and Restorative.

We’re engaging New Zealanders in what God is doing in Asia through frontline mission work. Our team works to empower rural communities by equipping them with training and resources to be self sufficient.
