Beyond the Border,
Create the Future



Pioneering the path to the future

Cross Fields was founded by a team of two individuals on 3 May, 2011. With the overwhelming support of many people, we were able to expand our field of activity with Corporate Volunteering Program (CVP) at its core. We have bridged more than 30 Japanese corporates with nearly 70 organizations across Asia and created significant impact on both business and society. With ever more complex social challenges we face today, there is greater call for partnership across sectors and borders. By providing opportunities to cross over and encourage people to take action across different fields, we continue our activity to pioneer new paths to the brighter future.
