Japan Committee for UNICEF

The Japan Committee for UNICEF was founded in 1955. It has grown to become a leading institution for the advocacy of children’s rights in Japan. For the last five consecutive years, the Japan Committee has been the largest donor of private funds raised for UNICEF around the world, contributing more than US$100 million to UNICEF in 2003.

The Japan Committee works actively with a wide range of supporters, including private individuals, local volunteer organizations, schools and members of the business community throughout the country. It also works closely with parliamentarians and government agencies to promote full implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Over the last few years the Japan Committee has organized a series of advocacy campaigns against commercial sexual exploitation of children, child trafficking and child soldiers. In addition, it conducts diverse information and education programmes across the nation to promote better understanding of the needs of children in the developing world.
