With the vision of “Inclusive and Dynamic Development”, JICA provides support to solve issues in developing countries using the best approach out of many different support methods and combining it with regional, country and issue-specific approaches.

The three missions of JICA’s volunteer projects are to: “(1) contribute to development and rehabilitation of developing countries, (2) promote friendship and mutual understanding with developing countries, and (3) return profits to the society making use of volunteering experiences”. They are grassroots voluntary activities featuring promotion of self-help efforts of local people by living, working and speaking the same languages with them and thus establishing mutual understanding.

They are working with creativity and the challenging spirit in accordance with local situations. Their activities include “on-demand classes”, “campaigns and events”, “development of teaching materials and PR tools”, “organization of environmental groups”, “development of human resources for leaders”, “promotion of compost”, “improvement of waste collection system”, “eco-tourism” and “improvement of exhibits”.
