The founder Ms. Sachiko TOMINAGA participated in many international events such as girlguides international camp when she was young, and she was inspired by the international relationship and cooperation. Then she engaged in education development as one part of girlguide activities. Her experience brought her to international cooperation field and she decided to establish “international Volunteer foundation”（A predecessor of IV-Japan) in 1988.
In the beginning, we started a regional exchange with Laotians who came to Japan in Omiya City, Saitama. As we exchange deeply, We came to know each other. And we came to start activities to support Laos such as constructing school building, providing scholarship, and delivering vocational training, and so on.
As we hope all the people on the earth admit each other and live together, our activities are:
・We carry out cooperative activities for Asian People.
・We promote and make effort for the actualization of economic and mental independence.
・We support peaceful and democratic society.
・We promote education development for Japanese people.
