Japan NGO for International Development in Africa (JANIDA), was established as an International Organization on 2nd January 2016 in Japan, with its purpose that aims at supporting the local communities in Japan and Africa through identifying and solving the problems and challenges affecting their livelihoods.

The four thematic priority areas which were selected include;

(1) Agriculture, food & nutrition security, Hunger and poverty,

(2) Environmental conservation & Climate change,

(3) Education, culture & Art.

(4) Disaster preparedness and conflict prevention.

The Organization was founded due to increased problems and challenges affecting the local communities in the above areas. This prompted the founders of this organization to establish JANIDA to support the local communities to overcome these challenges.
