ONE BODY VILLAGE
CPP BENEFICIARY: 2022 – 2023
One Body Village is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1999 to bring hope to sexually abused and exploited children, particularly in Southeast Asia. One Body Village’s name was derived from an African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child”, which means that it takes an entire community of different people interacting with children in order for a child to experience and grow in a safe environment.
During the 2021-2022 academic year, our participating regional partners managed to raise $59,531.84 for our beneficiary, Asian Prisoner Support Committee!
Our highest ranking regional fundraisers were:
- MAUVSA – $32,925.83
- Midwest – $17,585.30
- South – $7,400.00
Without the contribution and support of our constituency, this would not have been possible. We are excited to see these funds go towards a great cause!

Asian Prisoner Support Committee (APSC) has advocated for Asian and Pacific Islander prisoners and formerly incarcerated through numerous of campaigns and programs for almost 20 years. Their campaigns raise awareness to specific cases, fight to protect detained or deported immigrants and refugees, and ultimately bring them home.
Fellows will be part of a three-month-long paid and remote fellowship where they will be paired with an organization currently addressing human rights and living conditions in Vietnam.
The goal of this program is to provide fellows with important skills that are heavily desired by employers in the workplace while offering them the ability to expand their professional network and gain knowledge about non-profits serving Vietnamese communities.

HOW DOES UNAVSA WORK WITH ITS CONSTITUENTS TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE ANNUALLY SELECTED PHILANTHROPY PROJECT?
Involvement looks different year-to-year. The most important part any organization can play in the campaigning phase is helping our members understand the CPP Beneficiary’s work and impact. Regions compete against each other to fundraise money and raise awareness. Membership schools may pledge quantitative amounts annually to demonstrate the growth, sustainability, and involvement of their local VSA.
HOW CAN WE CONTINUE TO RECEIVE INFORMATION REGARDING THE ANNUAL APPLICATION PROCESS IF NOT SELECTED AT THE COMING YEAR’S BENEFICIARY?
We recommend you monitor UNAVSA’s Facebook page, or subscribe to the UNAVSA mailing list for the latest updates about UNAVSA and CPP. We are also certainly always open to exploring other ways to learn and partner with each other!
What does the CPP Selection Process entail?
Round 1 – Submitting the application:
The application consists of the CPP Application Form and an OPTIONAL video submission. These are reviewed by the CPP Preliminary Voting Board, which consists of the UNAVSA Executive Board, Cabinet Directors, and the CPP Selection Committee. A total of three organizations will be selected by the Preliminary Voting Board and invited to deliver a presentation at our annual UNAVSA conference.
Round 2 – CPP Selection Session:
Each organization will present their purpose, goals and proposal to UNAVSA conference attendees. After presentations from each group, participants will discuss, comment, and ask questions about the organizations and their purpose. Attendees will then vote with their region for the organization they think deserves to be next year’s CPP Beneficiary. Results will be tabulated by the CPP Selection Committee and will be announced at the Gala Saturday evening.
