ASSIST Asia (Philippines)

Sreeni is the founder and group managing director of Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Transformation (ASSIST), an innovative and capacity-building international non-government organization (NGO) that promotes sustainable practices to partner development organizations.

A chemical engineer by profession with an MBA from the Asian Institute of Management tucked under his belt, Sreeni has led ASSIST in managing projects in over 20 countries across Asia and maintaining offices in four – the Philippines, its headquarters; India; Vietnam; and Cambodia. Alongside these development partnerships, he has led the organization’s Social Actions projects, which are all internally conceptualized and independently managed by ASSIST with the aim of challenging conventional thinking, sparking positive change, and building enduring cooperation for progress in areas such as education, technology, human rights, environment, among others. Sreeni is also behind ASSIST’s other social ventures, which include Impact Magazine (formerly AsianNGO Magazine), a first-of-its-kind mixed media magazine that aims to provide NGOs opportunities to find funds, partners and relevant learning resources for better organizational and program management.
