This project aims to foster next-generation leaders who will contribute to improve food and nutrition in Africa. With strengthened cooperation between Tokyo NODAI and its African partner universities, the bidirectional student exchanges will enrich both Japanese and African students' practical learning opportunities and knowledges on the latest agricultural and nutritional sciences in Japan.
The online exchange sessions make it possible for students in Africa and Japan to remotely interact with each other. In this sessions, students can deepen cross-cultural understandings, study each other's languages, and discuss global issues. The starting time of the sessions may vary, but it will be after 9:00 AM in Kenya and Tanzania time.

|Brief Statement Description||Tokyo University of Agriculture (Tokyo NODAI) was founded in 1891 from the Tokugawa Ikueiko School, as its forerunner, which was devoted exclusively to agriculture. Based upon our educational principle of “ returning man to the farm” and fostering human resources for entry into the business community in addition to the universityʼs core field of “Agriculture” with its 129-year history, the institution has now evolved into a comprehensive agricultural university perfectly positioned to solve a wide range of issues related to food, environment, health and biomass energy. These issues are addressed through our three graduate schools of Agriculture, Applied Bioscience and Bioindustry constituting 23 departments on our three campuses which cover a vast geographical region extending from subtropical (South) to temperate (North) climate conditions. Thus, Tokyo NODAI offers a unique education and research environment to address humankind problems both locally and globally. Our Miyako subtropical, Fuji, Isehara and Abashiri farms and Okutama Practice Forest and Marine Research are meant to fulfill our mission. In addition to the above statement, Tokyo NODAI closely works with more than 40 universities from 30 countries distributed on all continents to address global issues through partnerships.|
|Mission Statement||Tokyo NODAI continues to challenge the new "Practical Science" for sustainable development of mankind
and the earth through research and education on Food, Environment, Health and Natural Resources and
Energy. Tokyo NODAI mission breaks down as follows:
●Taking over the fundamental principle, we challenge the cutting-edge in scientific fields, such as high technology, microbes and mystery of animate life by the new "Practical Science".
●Creation of well-balanced sustainable society based on the symbiosis of nature, environment and region.
●Fostering all-round individuals through integration of inductive approach (emphasis on experiment) and deductive approach (emphasis on creativity - using one's own brain).
