The project brought together the expertise, knowledge base and comparative advantages of the Asian Development Bank, the South-East Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).


ADB was the primary funding agency for this project.

The SEAMEO executed portion of this project focused primarily on the first target group, in-school youth in selected cross-border sites.SEAMEO drew mainly on the experience of the regional centres for Tropical Medicine Network (TROPMED), Educational Innovation and Technology (INNOTECH), and Open Learning Centre (SEAMOLEC). 

UNESCO focused solely on the second and third target groups, out-of-school youth, especially in ethnic minority areas, and other special risk populations and circumstances, including the source communities of those most vulnerable and at risk. UNESCO supplemented its experience with that of the Joint United Nations Programme on AIDS (UNAIDS).
