CWS Japan, along with Japan Platform and Save the Children Japan, participated in a visit to Washington DC organized by Japan Center for International Exchange (JCIE). The objective of the visit was to learn how different stakeholders contributed to the growth of NGO sector in the US. The visit allowed us to learn that all stakeholders, including USAID, members of congress, NGO networks, all made conscious investments and efforts for decades since 1970’s. Japan’s NGO sector is still not as strong as we want it to be, but such experience from a country like US offers so many lessons to learn from, and to apply. It’s about time we make a similar strategic investment to the sector in Japan, and CWS Japan will continue to play a leadership role in this growth process.
