HOPE International Development Agency’s vision is to extend compassion to the neglected poor.
HOPE-JP is part of the HOPE network, which raises compassion for families in the developing world across 9 different countries, including Canada. By partnering with people around the world, HOPE works towards eradicating extreme poverty through sustainable development and helping families achieve self-reliance.
Since its founding in 2001, HOPE-JP has been working with residents of Japan to assist the families in developing countries. In order to realize this, we also focus on furthering understanding within Japan about the effectiveness of sustainable development in addressing needs in the developing world.
In 2004, HOPE-JP became an official non-profit organization in Japan. In the same year, HOPE-JP became a member of the Nagoya NGO Center. In June 2013, HOPE-JP was certified as a Nintei NPO and awarded tax deductibility status by the Japanese tax administration agency.
