We believe that collaboration can increase the scale and scope of our collective impact across interacting issues in the region.

Our regional outlook and multi-sector Approach provides a broad range of expertise and networks to leverage

Expertise

Our multidisciplinary team bring regional experience in the environmental and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sector, as well as skills in behaviour change, curriculum design, training, facilitation, and research. We have partnered community organisations, educational institutions, and government agencies run initiatives in animal welfare, disaster response, education, environment, health, and migrant worker rights.

Networks

With staff in Indonesia and Singapore as well as volunteers in more than 20 countries, we have the ability to gather knowledge and resources from around the world. Partners tap on our networks to gain regional perspective, access opportunities in new locations, and get hard-to-find answers.

Examples of partnerships

Yayasan sao Mere (Indonesia)

WISE has a strategic partnership with Yayasan Sao Mere to co-run initiatives in Nagekeo. Initiatives we have worked together on include: a Community Education Club for elementary school aged children in Lego, Story of the Land to reduce littering, and the COVID-19 response during the early days of the pandemic. An organisation that focuses on improving the livelihoods of youth, YSM represents their communities in communicating needs and connects them with resources while WISE contributes our manpower and expertise to design and implement identified initiatives.

Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS)

WISE is a resource partner with SUSS’s Centre for Experiential Learning to provide meaningful community engagement opportunities for their students. Under our Designing for Behaviour Chamge programme, SUSS brings in community and environmental organisations such as Lutheran Community Care Services (LCSS) to work together with students on an issue they are facing. WISE delivers a customised training programme and mentoring to guide students and partners through the process of designing and implementing a community-based initiative through a behaviour change lens. 

Transient Workers Count too (TWC2) - Singapore

WISE worked with TWC2 to carry out a survey on the recruitment fees paid by low-wage migrant workers in Singapore. An established organisation advocating for the rights of migrant workers, TWC2 designed and translated the survey questions, and disseminated the survey among their networks. WISE deployed the survey on KoboToolbox, carried out the data analysis, and wrote the report.
