RIJ is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to support refugees who have been displaced as a result of war and conflict. Operating out of Tokyo, we are staffed by volunteers from the Japanese and International communities. RIJ channels project funds through experienced organizations already working with refugees out in the field, ensuring that support goes quickly and directly to where it is most needed.

We provide hope to refugees by funding projects that rebuild lives and restore human dignity in a sustainable and community-orientated way. RIJ operates according to a strict code of accountability and transparency, so that you can see for yourself exactly where, when and how your donation is making a difference.
