The Association for Nepal Synapse Self-Reliance Support in Japan (ANSSSJ) is a non-political, non-governmental, not for profit humanitarian organisation based in Japan. Established in 2008, the ANSSSJ intends to develop opportunities for women in Nepal to generate an income and contribute to their children’s education.
The ANSSSJ aims to provide basic education for marginalised children and to provide work-training programs for parents who are unable to send their children to school due to a lack of income or employment.
The ANSSSJ also plans to establish local sales branches, enabling the selling of the products made by those who receive such work training. In consequence, the ANSSSJ helps the community to attain a more circulatory, income-generating and sustainable state, where the residents make their everyday lives more self-reliant, autonomous and independent, and a thus able to provide education for their children.
On a long-term basis, the ANSSSJ also helps the Nepali people to conserve their cultural and historical traditions through the realisation of autonomy and cultural embodiment in everyday life.
