Contribution to Fellowship Programs for Journalists from Developing Countries

We invite groups of young journalists from developing countries/areas which have so far sent only a few journalists to Japan. During their stay in Japan, these promising journalists have lectures on Japan's current topics such as politics, economy and society; visit a newspaper company, a university and a local community; and stay with Japanese families. They also gather news in accordance with their own fields of interest. This program is intended to increase the number of journalists who have a good understanding of Japan.

Contribution to Press Tours to Areas Devastated by the Great East Japan Earthquake

In the areas severely damaged by the Great East Japan Earthquake, efforts have been made for the reconstruction of infrastructure and for restoration of local communities. Nevertheless, people's interest, domestic or foreign, in the disaster-hit areas has been waning as time goes by. FPCJ carries out press tours to disaster-afflicted areas to prevent people from forgetting about the disaster. We will use your contribution for our press tour to be carried out in February every year.

Contribution to a Program Inviting Journalists from Disaster-hit Countries

Recognizing that it is Japan's responsibility to share, with the international community, the lessons and knowledge obtained from such disasters as the Great East Japan Earthquake, typhoons and volcanic eruptions, FPCJ invites journalists from disaster-hit countries. You contribution will be used for their participation in the program.

Contribution to Conferences for Sending Information Out of Japan

Recent news from Japan that is picked out by the foreign media has been going down both in quality and quantity, it has been pointed out. FPCJ holds, two or three times a year, conferences to analyze and study foreign news organizations, their news on Japan, their ideal future, and possible cooperation between FPCJ and them. Your contribution will be used to hold these conferences.
