SGO’s South East Asia social enterprise and for-purpose library

Organisations and enterprises across South East Asia, and how you can support and connect with them.

Many of these organisations we’ve met and worked with through our public diplomacy programs, and others from travels and research.

Many are chosen because we can support, shop, attend online classes and interact from here in Australia as well as when we can visit in person.
