Project ASYA (= Advocacy for Street based Youth work and networking Action)

As a logical continuation of STREAT project (2015-2016), ASYA (2017-2019) was completed in late September. Developed by Asociación Navarra Nuevo Futuro ANNF (Spain) and the Street work Training Institute (SwTI) supported by Conversas Associação Internacional CAI (Portugal), in partnership with Dynamo International Street Workers Network, ASYA has resulted in the Asian streetworkers network development.

Trainings in Pamplona («Networking and Team work»), Nepal («Avocacy») and Manila («Training for trainers») have helped dozens of streetworkers to reinforce their capacities and to train afterwards other colleagues, achieving thereby the three specific goals of the project:

  • Networking: create and reinforce the network of Social Street Workers organizations which use the Social Street Work methodology in that region;
  • Advocacy: carry out advocacy and awareness campaigns to encourage the policymakers to change the legal framework for the recognition of the methodology of Social Street Work and status of its workers;
  • Training: reinforce the skills of hundreds of Social Street Workers on Asian continent.

Strong result of the project: Asian partners (from Cambodia, Hong Kong, Nepal, Philippines, East Timor and Vietnam) form nowadays a structured group which meet and assist each other, especially since the seminar which complemented the DISWN pilot group in Nepal, in October 2018, in which several new Asian platforms have joined the international network.

Another tangible result is the edition of Fascicle #6 «Networking and Team work».
