About PHJ

Providing education on health and medical care to the mothers and children of Asia

PH-Japan (People’s Hope Japan – PHJ) is an international NGO that is giving hope to the people of Asia and empowering them to lead healthy and happy lives by providing education on health and medical care. We are focusing on maternal and child healthcare education.
PHJ got its start in 1997 as  Project HOPE Japan, the Japan organization of the US NGO, Project HOPE.  In 1999 it won certification as a specified non-profit organization (NPO) by the Japanese Government, and in 2001 became the first NPO to be accredited as a certified NPO by the Japan Tax Agency. In 2006 it was reorganized as an independent organization and changed its name to PH-Japan (People’s Hope Japan). In 2017 PHJ celebrated its 20th anniversary.


Health and hope for all

PHJ will provide assistance to help people worldwide improve health and medical environment and ultimately contribute to facilitate international cooperation.

To empower the people of Asia, PH-Japan provides education on health and medical care, as well as medical and health support in disaster relief.

Based on a humanitarian spirit, we support people in need, helping them become confident, self-dependent, healthy, and happy.

Accountability Self-check 2012

In February 2018, PHJ implemented the NGO Accountability Self-check (ASC) 2012 to assess its own accountability and successfully acquired the Accountability self-check 2012 certification mark.
The ASC, a set of standards of accountability, was provided by Japan NGO Center (JANIC) for strengthening Japanese NGOs’ ability to answer to the expectations and requirements of stakeholders. The standards cover four aspects of NGO’s organization management, project implementation, financial status, and information disclosure activities. Please refer to the JANIC ASC site.
PHJ recognizes the importance of its abilities to perform social responsibility and to enhance its organizational reliability and acquired the Accountability Self-check 2012 mark.
