JACE Philosophy

The Japan-Asia Cultural Exchange Association, commonly known as JACE, was born in March 2001 in Utsunomiya City, Tochigi Prefecture.

Initially, he was developing direct relief activities while giving lectures mainly on the relief of socially vulnerable people such as social problems, handy cappers, and bullying problems in Japan.

After investigating the tense situation of North Korea’s nuclear issue, Masahiro Sakata, the founder of the association and a modern table, thought that not only did he rely on the United States, but we Japanese are our own country. I think we have to prepare to protect. Shouldn’t the problems of our own country be solved by our own country ? In order to promote Japan’s independence, we believe it is important to establish credibility with Asian countries and the people who live there, and to establish better relationships.

So how should we develop our activities? We think that by opening branches of the Japan-Asia Cultural Exchange Association (JACE) in all 48 Asian countries, we will build friendly relations between nations at the private level and create a circle of friendship that transcends the barrier of nations. We believe that we will expand and strive to coexist and co-prosper with Asia as a community in the future, and we have been active so far.

Greetings from the President

In pursuit of peace for the people of the world, cooperation with various people, organizations and governments will be indispensable. In August 2018, the Japan-Asia Cultural Exchange Association acquired her independent NPO in the United States in New York City, where the United Nations headquarters are located (Japan Asia Cultural Exchanges, Inc.).

Every year at the United Nations Headquarters, many NGOs, diplomats and government officials meet to discuss the future of the world. By setting the headquarters in such a place, we will be able to grow as JACE and carry out projects that can help more people.

JACE will carry out activities to eliminate poverty by delivering the necessary support where it is needed through the three goals of education for children, improvement of human rights of women, and support for HIV patients, which are the original goals of the United States.

One of the projects we are currently working on is the need for a system to recognize more women who are working hard at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, which was also held last month at the United Nations Headquarters in New York (for example, famous). I would like to convey the need for support so that everyone can work more vigorously, both inside and outside the United Nations, by commending women who work hard in various positions, not just from various companies and organizations.
