for higher education
We establish and operate a fund to provide scholarships to support refugees in Japan with university education both at undergraduate and graduate levels. In cooperation with various universities and educational institutions, we will expand opportunities of higher education.
into Japanese society
We admit people with refugee experience from abroad to Japan, offer support in Japanese education and social integration, and provide career counseling. We also support them in widening network with the local welcoming communities.
｜Support for employment
We provide information and opportunities regarding job hunting and employment to refugees admitted from abroad. We also network with the business sector that promotes employment of international human resources including refugees-experienced people.
In Japan and in Asia as a whole, we raise awareness of admission of people with refugee background and make advocacy for social environment and systems. For the purpose, we hold symposiums, give lectures, contribute to international conferences, and make our voice heard through the media.
