The HANDs! Project is a human resource development program sponsored by the Japan Foundation Asia Center. The Project was created as a place for mutual learning, sharing knowledge, and cooperating to solve problems for disaster prevention and support for disaster-affected areas, primarily in Asian countries.

Currently, youth with a strong interest in disaster prevention are selected once a year from nine countries including Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Cambodia, and Japan for training. By our target date of 2020, we will produce many new leaders who will cultivate disaster prevention and support activities for disaster-affected areas in the Asian region and build a network that transcends national borders.
