企画書・概要 (Abstract of Project Proposal)

アジアをひとつの「コミュニティ」ととらえ、開発途上国の人々による社会開発等の取り組みを、日本の市民等民間寄付による基金を通じて支援するという考え方のもと、1979年に設立された「公益信託アジア・コミュニティ・トラスト」(ACT)は、過去31年間に13カ国、160以上の現地NGOが実施する500件余りの事業に、総額5億8,000万円以上を助成してきた。中には大きな成果を挙げ、持続可能な形で地域住民の生活改善に寄与し、その事業がモデルとして他国へ広がっているものから、事業の目的を達成できず、活動が終了しているものがある。
本事業では、まず、裨益団体が地域社会の持続的な発展にどのように取り組み成功に導いたのか、また、困難と向き合ってきたのかについての経験を交流し、共有する場を提供する。第二に、アジアの多くの国が近年著しい経済発展を遂げる中で、自国での資金開拓を含むリソースの活用と国境を越えた(上記の)成功事例の経験共有を通して、日本市民からの一方的な資金的供与という形から、それぞれの地域の社会が積極的に参加しアジアの“コミュニティ”を支え合う、新たな「協働」の在り方を模索する。

Pursuing a vision of developing a sense of "community" in the Asian region where people help one another, Asian Community Trust (ACT) was established in 1979 to support various non-profit organizations in the region that are involved in social development and other concerned activities through funds donated by Japanese individuals and organizations. In its 31 years so far, ACT has granted a total of around 580 million Japanese yen (7.4 million US dollars) to over 160 local NGOs for their around 500 projects in 13 countries in the region.

Among the ACT-funded projects some achieved great success in improving quality of life of over hundreds of thousands people in sustainable manner and were replicated by other NGOs and expanded to other communities/countries while others failed to achieve their objectives. Meanwhile, a number of Asian countries such as Thailand and India have been successfully developing their economies and an increasing number of NGOs in Asia are successful in capacitating socially marginalized people.

Under the aforementioned conditions and changing economic environment in Asia, this project has two major purposes. First, it aims to study and share experiences of the conference participants and others concerned: how ACT's beneficiary organizations, especially those successful ones, have tackled problems (strategies) and overcome difficulties, leading to sustainable development in their own local communities.

Secondly, it aims to explore, while reexamining ACT current granting schemes to Asian NGOs, a new paradigm of collaboration among ACT local NGO partners and other Asian NGOs in empowering those socially marginalized people and pursuing social development in sustainable manner in securing /expanding financial sources and sharing technical know- how, and due role of ACT.
