After 50 years of working experience at grassroots level, OISCA adopts a new approach of integrating all its development and environmental conservation programs. OISCA coined the term Furusato Movement. The term furusato is Japanese word which means home.
The Furusato Movement is aimed at creating sustainable communities where its residents work together in a spirit of cooperation and self-reliance to achieve their common goals. It is also aimed at economic self- reliance, social security, environmental conservation and participation in policy formulation realized on the foundation created by various forms of capacity building.
