Implementation of comprehensive and inclusive support for foreign residents
Shanti Volunteer Association, Association for Aid and Relief
Although Japanese government has expanded the acceptance of foreign students and labor, there are less adequate systems to accept and support them. Under these circumstances, they are in need because it is hard for many foreign residents to reach support. The generation of foreign residents are from children to adults and the problems they are facing are also related to various areas such as employment, schooling, housing and medical care. However, there is no adequate system to tackle these problems comprehensively. Therefore, in this pledge, we declare that, over the next four years, we provide comprehensive and inclusive to foreign residents according to their individual life stages and many needs cooperating with various sectors working on various issues. We, as the hub of support groups, coordinate not only with various actors but also with foreign residents themselves and tackle the wide range of problems foreign residents have.
