In 2002, President Albert Santoli created Asia America Initiative to promote peace through education, community building, and economic development.
Three major goals of AAI are to:
1. Build hope and empower local communities.
2. Address conflict and poverty in diverse cultures through: economic development and job creation, mentoring potential young leaders, education, emergency relief, ecology and peace mediation.
3. Strengthen healthcare and nutrition in local communities through emergency relief, including special medicine programs for rare diseases and effective farming and fisheries programs.
