"landmine and unexploded ordnance prevention," "support for the disabled,"
and "infectious disease prevention”. We also make proposals to the government

findings gained through our activities.

Toward a better society

Policy change is crucial in tackling various conflict, poverty, and human rights-related issues, along with providing direct support to the affected people. We aim to create a better society by picking up the voices of those who are unable to speak out, and channeling them to local governments, the international community, and public opinion in developed countries, using the knowledge we have gained in the field.
