Changing Lives




s I write this introduction to the East Meets West 2012 Annual Report, I’m struck by how quickly last year—with all its hard work and substantial results—has receded from view, caught up as I am in the work at hand in 2013. So returning to1988, the year EMW was born as an organization, requires some serious mental time travel. But it’s important to honor the fact that EMW has been active and growing for a quarter century, helping change the lives of over 5.9 million disadvantaged people in eight countries. EMW’s 25 years of results—featured here alongside our 2012 accomplishments—were made possible by dedicated, visionary staff; strategic partnerships and generous funders; a host of individual donors; and pioneering approaches like results-based financing. Much credit is also due to Atlantic Philanthropies. Under Country Director Le Nhan Phuong’s leadership, AP made a major investment in EMW that has paid off in a faster growing, stronger, more capable organization. EMW isn’t just growing fast—we’re growing smart. We’re not just identifying and seizing opportunities for growth; we’re creating them. We’re pleased that in 2012 our efficiency and effectiveness was again recognized by the esteemed watchdog organization Charity Navigator, which gave EMW its highest rating— four stars—for the fourth year running. As Nelson Mandela said, “Playing small doesn’t serve the world.” We best honor EMW’s success by building on it, applying the valuable lessons we’ve learned to achieve even greater impact. That’s why, in the pages of this annual report, you’ll find the key results of the strategic planning process we undertook in 2012. The plan sets out a path for growth and embodies EMW at its most visionary and forward-looking. But let’s not neglect 2012. Much was achieved last year through the efforts of our staff, partners, donors and beneficiaries. In particular: In clean water and sanitation, EMW received a $10.9 million grant to launch and implement a community-based program to promote latrine building and hygiene education. Ultimately, this project will improve sanitation for 1.7 million people in rural Vietnam and Cambodia.

In the education sector, we continued to work with a network of schools to maintain scholarships for over 12,000 disadvantaged students in Vietnam. Targeted geographic expansion brought educational support to 200 high school girls in India. Our Breath of Life (BOL) neonatal healthcare program expanded to six EMW PRESIDENT hospitals in Myanmar (with JOHN ANNER 20 more to come in 2013), supplying new, durable equipment and intensive training. BOL was also launched in Benin, one of several countries in West Africa where many newborn lives will be saved through the program’s timely interventions. In 2012, EMW’s ongoing commitment to innovation and impact was reflected in the continued strengthening of our partnerships with MTTS, our design and manufacturing partner in Vietnam, and Design that Matters. Whether you’ve been a friend of EMW for two, five, 10 or 25 years, I know you share our commitment to improving lives, be it a strong start for vulnerable newborns, an education that brightens prospects, or better community health through clean water and improved sanitation. Your support is invaluable in allowing EMW to grow wisely and effectively. Please stay with us as we innovate for better lives and social justice, replicate success from one community to another, share our knowledge with peer organizations and national governments, and use the influence of those contributions to make the world a healthier, better educated, more hopeful place. Let’s see what we can accomplish together in the next 25 years! Warm regards,

John Anner President

MOVING FORWARD A Strategy for Organizational Transformation at East Meets West Throughout 2012, EMW’s stakeholders—program and senior staff, board members, donors, and partners—engaged in a strategic planning process to assess the organization’s current capabilities, compare them to the needs of our ever-changing world, and develop a pathway for moving forward. Our ambitious 2009 strategic plan, which focused on global expansion, introduced new countries, programs, and funding mechanisms. Between 2009 and 2013, we launched programs in Laos, Cambodia, Timor-Leste, Myanmar, India, the Philippines and West Africa. Not that we have left Vietnam behind. In fact, our geographic expansion has only enhanced our program work there. Our biggest grant to date, for example, funds a sanitation program in both Cambodia and Vietnam. We’ve found that our success hinges on flexibility, innovation, and creativity. Rather than just doing more of the same thing every year, we are constantly seeking new ways to deliver more benefits at a lower cost by pioneering the use of results-based financing, developing new technologies specifically designed, engineered and manufactured for low-resource settings, and devising social enterprise approaches to solving problems. We will continue to focus on EMW’s distinctive competencies, such as our sanitation business model, newborn care medical devices, self-funding dental program, and results-based education financing, but we will also be actively seeking fresh ideas and new ways of helping people. The world needs both effective implementation and ongoing innovation. EMW is committed to delivering both.

EMW’s three core areas reflect our commitment to delivering catalytic solutions to difficult development problems around the globe.

Global Health

EMW’s health programs focus on providing access to healthcare services for children with unmet needs in low-resource settings. The Breath of Life program provides cost-effective neonatal equipment and training to hospitals to save newborn lives. Operation Healthy Heart Plus promotes early identification and treatment of heart defects in children at the community level. The Dental Program employs an innovative social enterprise model to support free dental treatment for children at its clinic and on outreach trips to rural areas.

Water, Sanitation & Hygiene

Water, Sanitation & Hygiene programs work hand-in-hand with local groups and civic leaders in rural communities to help provide sustainable access to clean water and improvements to sanitation and hygiene. Our Clean Water Systems program builds community water systems that bring clean piped water to households and solar-powered systems that deliver clean water to schools. Community Hygiene & Sanitation supports household latrine construction and improved sanitation through innovative OutputBased Aid financing, incentives and community education.


Our initiatives stress quality, completion and credentialing for primary, secondary and university students. EMW has pioneered the use of innovative results-based financing in the education sector. Our SPELL scholarships provide comprehensive support to students through high school graduation. SPELL Goes to College gives high-achieving students four-year scholarships to attend university. The Village of Hope Disadvantaged Children’s Center provides shelter, education and a nurturing environment for its young residents.
