About ISSJ
(International Social Service Japan)

International Social Service Japan (ISSJ) is a non-profit organization that helps individuals, children and families confronted with complex social welfare issues because of migration and crossing country borders.

In 1952, in order to help war orphans and mixed race children, The Japan-American Joint Committee for the Assistance of Orphans was established in Tokyo. Then in 1959, from the Ministry of Health and Welfare (now known as the Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare), the organization was authorized as a social welfare service corporation.
