YOJ Conference: Afternoon Keynote Address “The Open-Sogo-Fujo Network:The Role of Civil Society in Humanitarian Action"

Sogo-Fujo is a traditional Japanese term meaning mutual assistance within a given community.

AMDA has opened up the spirit of Sogo-Fujo across and beyond communities.Since its inception in 1984 and steadily building on its past experience, AMDA pursues a comprehensive and inclusive approach to its activities focusing on peaceful sustainable development. AMDA’s “Global Partnership for Sustainable Peace” philosophy aims to realize peaceful coexistence of diversity in which ordinary people can sustain a decent living and realize their hopes for tomorrow. Under the open-Sogo-Fujo, AMDA will fortify its present network and incorporate new partners from all possible fields for collaboration and joint-activities in emergency relief and peace-building efforts. Living in an age of uncertainties - politically, economically and socially with ever-increasing natural threats, AMDA will continue to seek collaborative ways to realize and sustain peace in the world. Ms.Namba will introduce the philosophy and concepts of open-Sogo-Fujo with specific examples of AMDA’s experiences worldwide. She will expand on the social milieu of the past and present Japan which has nurtured the spirit of Sogo-Fujo.BIO: Ms. Tae Namba is a Board Member and Director of International Relations with the Association of Medical Doctors of Asia (AMDA).
