About AAR Japan

AAR Japan is an international NGO that reaches out to the most vulnerable populations around the globe, guided by the principles of neutrality and impartiality. Founded in 1979, we have been working towards achieving a world where all people, as unique and diverse human beings, can coexist with human dignity and in harmony.

Our Principles

Impartiality and Independence

AAR Japan discriminates against no one based on their political views, or religious belief and delivers aid to the most affected in an impartial manner. To ensure neutrality of our work, we make all the efforts possible to avoid depending on public sources of funding.

Supporting those who are most in need

AAR Japan is dedicated to assisting those who are most affected and most in need whatever the reason may be. We also aim to provide long-term assistance rather than short-lived aid.
