Happening Now! … #IPMResponds - Weekly Virtual Forum featuring IPM’s Regional Director for South Asia, Mahesh Upadhyaya, along with the inspiring voices of our dedicated and remarkable team of South Asia Fellows and Regional Staff.

Today’s Forum titled: COVID Crisis and Aftermath ... Hope Amidst Despair will provide an update what our Fellows and Immersion Partners are doing as our colleagues continue to stand in solidarity with our Project Partners around the world. COVID-19 knows no borders — but neither does hope. As families and children across South Asia face devastating heartbreak and loss, the only way through is together.

This continues a series of weekly Virtual Forums with IPM Community and Project Partners, members of our International Executive Board, Staff Leadership Team, and select other volunteers, donors, and friends for an hour long discussion of how, together with your support, IPM is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and other vital challenges facing our world including migration, climate change, the struggle for racial equity, and particularly the rights for women and girls.
