Our 2020 Annual Report – now available in English!

You can now read our 2020 Annual Report That We May Live Together in English!

The report is a detailed overview of our training, our farm, and our many activities with supporters and learners from Japan and overseas in 2020.

Of course, the report directs particular attention to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. How did it affect ARI, and what actions did we at ARI take to ensure safety?

While maintaining community life, we spent the year without compromising ARI’s values but instead reaffirmed the importance of those values. We want to express our sincere gratitude to the many supporters who enabled ARI to overcome the pandemic’s new challenges.

(from the “Greetings” by Board Chair Masaoki Hoshino and Director Tomoko Arakawa)

We are happy to share this report with you, supporters, partners, and friends of ARI, as a record of our commitment to rural leadership and learning for a livable future.
