|Guide to Japan Overseas Educational Services (JOES)||As Japan has become increasingly active in international affairs, the number of Japanese working overseas has risen rapidly. Consequently, over 50,000 Japanese children of school age are now living outside Japan with their parents on overseas assignment.
In order to meet the demands of educating these children, there are currently 88 full-time Japanese schools and 204 weekend supplementary schools throughout the world. Since the issue of overseas education is highly important to those who work overseas and the future of Japan itself, the Japanese government has been taking steps to improve the educational standards of these schools. However, restrictions such as those nation's education law, policy and funding can inhibit the implementation of such measures.
Japan Overseas Educational Services (JOES) was established through the initiative of Japanese corporations as a non-profit, private organization aimed at promoting the education of Japanese children abroad in accordance with the government's policy of overseas education. Many corporations and organizations engaged in overseas business activities have come together to establish this foundation. JOES was officially founded on January 29, 1971 as a non-profit foundation with the approval of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Education. Since then, it has made significant contributions in promoting the education of Japanese children overseas.
