About CSA

The Commission for the Solidarity with the Asian underprivileged (CSA)
is an non-governmental organisation (NGO) based in Japan that address the issue of supporting and protecting those in needs in Asian countries.

CSA was established in 1981, mainly by trade union organizations and its affiliates, to support and protect human rights of refugees from Indochina countries who settled in Japan. However, the situation surrounding the refugees in Japan has changed and the original objective of protecting refugees has been more or less achieved, CSA is now working as an NGO which encourages the development of South-East Asian countries.

Our objective

At present, CSA has expanded its activities to encourage the development of Asian countries. Combating with poverty, to promote the level of education, as well as to render our hands to the victims of natural disasters such as flood or typhoon are the major activities. CSA proceeds to pursue its objectives, with the cooperation of Japanese Trade Union Confederation (RENGO), its affiliates, individuals, enterprises as well as with related ministries both at home and at our counterpart countries.
