How we started:
  In December 2007 and January 2008, a series of "meeting to talk about sustainable development of projects to support residents of foreign background" were held in order to promote multicultural coexisting society in Tokai region. Then in the following February, the volunteers from the meetings got together and set up a founding committee of the intermediary organization for multicultural coexistence in order to "connect the dot" between organizations willing to give support and those who need them. Finally in October 2008, Resource Center for Multicultural Community Tokai was set up as a voluntary organization after over twenty preparatory meetings. The organization was registered as Not-for-Profit organization in September 2009.
