|ECHO Asia Impact Center|
The ECHO Asia Impact Center seeks to extend the services of ECHO to help those working with the poor in Asia to be more effective, especially in the area of agriculture. The ECHO Asia Impact Center functions primarily as a technical support organization helping community development organizations and workers operate more effectively.

With its regional office, ECHO is able to more effectively network with regional partners for the exchange of ideas, information, technology and other resources. Considering ECHO’s growing global network, such interaction will benefit small farmers in both the Asia/Pacific region and beyond.
