Located in Tochigi prefecture, Japan, the Asian Rural Institute (ARI) trains grassroots rural leaders who live and work in their native communities, regardless of their nationality, race, religious beliefs, gender, or age. The aim of the training is to build a more just and peaceful society by facilitating the self-development of rural leaders who return to their home communities and train the people of their local community.
ARI sets their own course and tells their own story, while their American Friends support them when near and far. You can learn about their work in many ways.
