Our Mission
The fundamental value of JOCS comes from the words of  Bible, “Just as I have loved you, you should love each other (John 13:34).” JOCS supports spontaneous activities of grass-roots people in Asia and Africa through dispatch of workers and scholarship programs.
  • Implement health and medical cooperation activities which involve personal exchanges.
  • Prioritizing marginalized people as target beneficiaries.
  • Promote activities of JOCS and fostering personnel who would work for health and medical cooperation activities overseas in the future.
JOCS is a Public Interest Incorporated Association whose supreme decision-making body is the annual general meeting of members. The general meeting of members is to approve settlement of account and to elect directors and auditors. The board of director is responsible for business operations. The committee and task team take roles of the consultative body. Two offices for daily operations are set in Tokyo and Osaka.   Each worker stays in his/her assigned country for at least three years so that he/she can develop a mutual and trustworthy relationship with the receiving party/people. They also bring back their unique experiences to share with our supporters back in Japan to broaden our horizons.   Staffs Dispatched Overseas and Their Introduction (PDF)
