Japan Emergency NGO's JEN
Originally established as “Japan Emergency NGOs”, a group of several Japanese NGOs active in the Former Yugoslavia, conducting assistance for refugees and internal displaced persons. Since, JEN is doing assistance activities for those victims of wars, internal conflicts, and natural disasters, based on the motto “psyco-social care and assistance for self-reliance”. In 2000, JEN has obtained NPO status under the Japanese law, opened its headquarters in Shinjuku, Tokyo, and changed its official name to “Authorized NPO JEN”.
They put their utmost efforts into restoring a self-supporting livelihood both economically and mentally to those people who have been stricken with hardship due to conflicts and disasters. They do so promptly, precisely, and flexibly by fully utilizing local human and material resources, considering this the most promising way to revitalize the society.
Furthermore, they also try to convey victims’ sufferings and their efforts to overcome such sufferings along with their hopes and desires to the rest of the world so that the value of peace is seen in a new light and is shared by people everywhere.
Adhering to our belief that "every human being has a precious life of equal value", they hope to realize a world in which they respect and understand each other, mutually support one another, and live with self-confidence.
