    Diversity of people, backgrounds, and values are the WELgee’s and society’s property.

    We won’t give up on communicating

    We have different points of view because of different nationalities, cultures, backgrounds, sides, language, and values.
    Although we have differences, we don’t give up on communication.
    Don’t be afraid to tell. The most important thing is the attitude toward trying to communicate.

    "WITH" Spirit

    Spirit of WITH

    WELgee’s activity aims for more than doing “For Refugees”, it’s doing “With Refugees”.WELgee started with “with refugees.”
    Refugees are our friends, we are beyond the relation of those who support and those who receive support. With our strength of various backgrounds and adverse passion, we bring innovation to society.

  • Critical Thinking

    Critical Thinking

    Critical thinking
    without subjectivity and assumption

    Until now, we made our principle in words.
    Thus, we won’t forget that we always view critically, objectively, and logically about ourselves. It isn’t easy to remove one's own subjectivity and assumption. We always ask ourselves to not be satisfied with the current situation, and come up with better solutions.

WHY WE DO

Refugees have various possibilities
inside themselves.
However, there is no environment for them
” to design their future” 
in Japan

Refugee in Japan

Every day new refugees arrive in Japan. They were living their normal daily lives in their home countries, just a few days before coming to Japan.


They dreamed about becoming an IT engineer, a journalist with a strong sense of justice, and a kind pastor.Each had their dream and some succeeded in their life, until they became a refugee.


Each refugees has unique individualities and talents with diverse skills and experiences.It would be a really shame if their unique talents are not utilized in Japan.

MESSAGE

  • 渡部 カンコロンゴ 清花

    Watanabe Kankolongo Sayaka

    Founder

In 2016, WELgee started its activity when we encountered “Refugees” in Tokyo, who are our good friends.
We aim to make a society that has the capacity of welcoming refugees.


As you can assume, WELgee is the word we made up by combining “welcome” and “refugee.”


We started our activity by encouraging “Refugees” to be exposed to Japanese society as individuals. Many people who shared the same vision became our friends and supporters, which is the foundation of WELgee.


Refugees are people who have studied and worked in their home countries. Some of them will be the future builders of their society. However, they are forced to leave their home countries and happen to arrive to Japan by coincidence.


I am a fan of people who look into the future, who have overcome the difficult situation and background of being a refugee. Even though they are the same generation as myself, they have come to Japan with any alternative. But still, they have a strong will to create a future of their desire.


They have touched my soul with their courage and dreams, and I am one of the Japanese who strongly desire to accomplish something together with them. I would like to create a society that will allow these young people to regain hope and make choices for their future. I am confident that with them, we will be able to make a colorful world.


I'd like yuo to ask one thing.
Why don't we create the society where anyone can make a progress regardless of their nationalies?
