Located in Kiyosato, Japan, in the Yokohama Diocese of the Nippon Sei Ko Kai Province, 
The Kiyosato Educational Experiment Project was founded in 1938 by an American man who wanted to foster the relationship between the Americans and Japanese after WWII. Their website now states: 

"The Kiyosato Educational Experiment Project (KEEP) is an economic and community development project rooted in Christian faith. KEEP was founded on four ideals: Food, Health, Faith, and Hope for Youth. KEEP added the principles of environmental education and international outreach to its advocacy work in the 1980s. But the mission remains constant: to offer program participants and visitors alike educational opportunities resulting in a new perspective, a stronger spirituality, a deeper cultural understanding, a richer appreciation for the ties that bind all people, and a call to serve others."

Seeing as a lot of you, myself included for now, do not know Japanese, here is the link for the American Committee for KEEP website where you can learn a little bit more about the organization. ACK is the American counterpart of KEEP that provides financial, technical and program support.

If you're feeling adventurous/have the Google translate for whole websites, here is the link to KEEP.
