Invest in human potential through RIJ. We support projects that provide opportunities for refugees to lead an independent normal life while staying near to home and their loved ones.

The projects we support enable people to support themselves as well as giving back to the community. We know that refugees can make a valuable contribution to the economy of a country.

RIJ is a Japanese NGO that relies on volunteer support. There are lots of opportunities to assist. Please see our volunteer page or e-mail:
