Community Projects

Community Projects & Contribution

DotAsia Organisation is dedicated to its mandate of promoting Internet development and adoption in Asia. Following the DotAsia vision of a collaborative Asia, we believe in community engagement and contribution and in partnerships with not-for-profit organizations to implement community projects. Besides Community Projects that DotAsia proactively support and develop, a portion of the proceeds from registrations (or renewals) of “.Asia” domains is set aside directly for community projects in partnership with Sponsor Members of DotAsia: [Sponsor Community Projects (SCP)].

DotAsia Community Projects Fall under the following 4 umbrellas:

DotAsia Projects Community projects supported directly by DotAsia.
NetMission Ambassador Projects NetMission.Asia is a flagship youth and Internet governance initiative launched by DotAsia in 2009. Building on the alumni since then, different ongoing projects have been launched under the NetMission.Asia umbrella, including for example, the YIGF Camp, NetY and iCity.
Go.Asia Projects Go.Asia is another flagship initiative launched and led by DotAsia since 2012. Consolidating the efforts from Relief.Asia which was launched in 2008, Go.Asia is a platform promoting volunteerism (beyond just directly Internet related issues) with a philosophy that “Every Act Counts”.
Community Sponsored Projects Sponsor Community Projects are supported through the direct contribution funds in partnership with Sponsor Members.
