Friends-International (Friends) is an award-winning social enterprise that saves lives and builds futures of the most marginalized children, youth, families and communities in South East Asia and around the world. We work to create a future where all children are safe from all forms of abuse, and become functional, productive citizens who contribute to a more peaceful, equitable and sustainable world.

Friends does this by connecting vulnerable beneficiaries to a holistic range of programming, including: community/street outreach, school reintegration/remedial education, transitional safe-housing, family reintegration, vocational training, drug prevention/treatment and income-generation (employment, micro-enterprise and home-based production). We also operates 14 vocational training businesses and seven social businesses that generated USD $3.5 million in 2016 to support sustainable program work.
