    Im pleased to share with you in the following pages a summary of East Meets Wests many accomplishments in 2011. As we move through 2012, EMWs staff, board, partners and volunteers can look back with justifiable pride on these achievements. While pride in a job well done can and should fuel our efforts, its equally important to guard against complacency. A fast-changing world requires that we continually evaluate not just whether our approach is effective, but whether the problems we are addressing continue to be relevant.

    Ten years ago, after my first trip to Viet-nam as head of EMW, a Vietnam veteran friend asked me about the situation with the Amerasian children left behind by US servicemen. Hed heard that they were treated poorly by the community and by officials, and clearly felt bad about it. I had to remind him that by now those children were in their mid-thirties and likely facing a different set of problems. Oh, right! he said, smacking his hand into his forehead.To remain effective (and avoid smacking our figurative foreheads) EMW, like all development organizations, has to avoid getting so focused on what we do well that we forget the world is constantly changing. To give an obvious example, a few decades ago, the attention of global development experts was focused on helping children attend primary school to achieve basic lit-eracy. In todays world, its increasingly ap-parent that what poor and middle income countries need are large numbers of well-educated young people. In places where EMW works, from India to the Philip-pines and Vietnam, there is both a large amount of underemployment and a drastic shortage of skilled labor.What these countries lack, I would argue, are colleges able to provide a decent edu-cation at a reasonable price to a significant percentage of high school graduates. And what young people from disadvantaged backgrounds now need is not help going to

    Warm Regards,

    John Anner President East Meets West

    primary school (governments by and large have done a reasonable job at this, with some notable exceptions), but help staying in high school and moving on to college.So Im very happy to report that in 2011, EMWs high school scholarship program supported almost 8,000 students. And Im equally pleased to announce that in 2012 we are launching our first significant program to assist a group of very motivated, accomplished high school graduates to go to college paying for their tuition, room and board. If you have a child attending college in the United States, youre in for some reverse sticker shock. In Vietnam, where EMW is piloting the program, $1,000 a year covers it all. This year we expect to sup-port a few dozen young people (all guaranteed full four-year support), and hope to see the program grow from there. At EMW, we cultivate a very necessary double vision. We keep one eye firmly on our programs, ensur-ing they produce cost-effective, durable and verifiable results. We keep the other eye on trends in the areas we work in, both in terms of programs and geography. The world is constantly changing, and we need to change with it lest we find ourselves solving yesterdays problems.As always, thank you so much for your con-tinued support of the children and families EMW works with in Asia, and if you would like to support one of these fine young college hopefuls, please let me know.
