Nagoya NGO Center

Who are we?

We are working to further develop and improve activities by NGOs in order to create a peaceful and an equal society made up of "global citizens", based mainly in the Chubu region of Japan (Aichi, Gifu, Mie). We work in cooperation with 50 associated NGOs, 2 supporting member organizations and 110 individual supporting members (as of July 2012).

 

Our Mission : The Society We Aim for is:

・A peaceful society

A society where human rights are protected

A society actively developed by people

A harmonious society

A society that can act from a global viewpoint

Our Activities

Basic Roles

  1. Networking
    We seek to develop NGOs strongly supported by the local community, which connect local people with the world. We aim to create a network among NGOs, as well as a network between NGOs, people and other sectors (private companies and authorities).
  2. Consulting
    We make efforts to improve the structure, the management system and projects of NGOs through our consultation services.
  3. Collecting and Disseminating Information
    In order to gain more understanding of NGOs and support from the local community, we gather information, experience and knowledge from various NGOs and actively relay this to the local community and other NGOs.
  4. Research
    We monitor the trends in the local community as well as in the world and the issues which affect activities of NGOs in the Chubu region, and analyze the information found to further improve activities of the NGOs.

Constructive Roles

  1. Advocacy
    We propose policies to bring voices of underprivileged people, ordinary people and NGOs who closely work with them, into politics and government, so that everyone's voices will be reflected and respected in the policy making process.
  2. Global Citizenship Education
    We engage in activities aimed at enhancing understanding of how the global issues, threatening millions of people throughout the world, such as extreme poverty and human right abuses, relate to our own lives. In so doing, we encourage people to take actions against such issues.
  3. Capacity Building
    We develop potentials of human resources in the local community, in order to create and promote local NGO activities, through participatory trainings and seminars for NGO workers and future NGO workers.
