KISWEC, Kyoto International Social Welfare Exchange Center


The Kyoto International Social Welfare Exchange Center (KISWEC) helps disabled people to take hopeful control of their destiny. The center runs a curative education counseling center for families with disabled preschool children and a psychological counseling center. It runs six workshops for people with disabilities. Since 2001, it has had its own residential home for the disabled. In addition, the K-shiki test was developed at KISWEC. It records the developmental status of children with disabilities and is now used in all pediatric, curative education and educational counseling services in Japan. In 1976, the Swiss East Asia Mission SOAM and KISWEC established an exchange program. It enables social workers from Kyoto to get to know the Swiss social welfare system during a three-month internship in a social diaconal institution. Mission 21 has continued this project since 2001.
