#1129: World Friendship Center
Nishi-ku Hiroshima,  Japan
The World Friendship Center promotes peace through classes, Peace Park tours and Hibakusha (A-bomb survivor) story scheduling, and by participating in a variety of community based Peace activities.

#1723: Asian Rural Institute
Tochigi-ken,  Japan
The Asian Rural Institute (ARI) is an international training ground for grassroots rural leaders. Each year we conduct a nine-month Rural Leaders Training Program, focusing on sustainable agriculture through integrated organic farming techniques, community building, and leadership. Working together we grow and share our own food. At the heart of the program is the concept of 'Foodlife' - a term designed to recognize and value the interdependency between life and the food that sustains all life.
