ASEAN Foundation


ASEAN Foundation is an organization from and for the people of ASEAN. We exist because of one vision: to build a cohesive and prosperous ASEAN community. Its mission is to commit to promoting ASEAN awareness through people-to-people interaction and collaboration with ASEAN stakeholders to help ASEAN build a caring, cohesive, equitable and peaceful ASEAN Community.

Since 1967 ASEAN has gone on a long journey to accelerate the economic growth, social progress and cultural development in the region. And, we have been an integral part of this mission for the last two decades.

Involvement in film

Yes, through the Media programme of the ASEAN Youth Video Contest, this program initiatives is to address the gap and encourage the youth to be more enthusiastic towards ASEAN and support the ASEAN Community. The ASEAN Foundation collaborated with ASEAN-US PROGRESS and the Government of the Philippines to launch the 1st ASEAN Youth Video Contest in 2015. The committee which comprised representatives from the ASEAN-US PROGRESS, the ASEAN Secretariat, the ASEAN Foundation, and USAID-ASIA selected candidates to join the video production training to hone their video skills for their two-minute short video. After the training, the participants returned to their country to continue producing their short video prior to the final submission.


We can only do what we do because of organisations and individuals who support our work.
Thank you everyone.
