Together, we can make a lasting impact on a child's life. 

We are a Tokyo-based non-profit organization with more than 10 years of experience building supporting relationships with local children's home (orphanages). Our NPO's primary mission is to help children growing up in institutionalized homes to become fully capable and financially independent young adults as they reach the age of 18 and prepare to leave the home - whether it is off to university, technical school, or to a new job.


The 30,000 children living in institutionalized homes across Japan are typically well cared for by a small yet dedicated staff. Ratio of staff members to children can often be as high as 1 adult to 6 kids. Although many of the homes have structured their environments into smaller family units to create a more personal space, it is difficult to offer consistent, individualized attention and guidance as they navigate through through primary and high school and begin to consider their future options. Adding to the difficulties is the large number of children dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder stemming from various forms of abuse resulting in the child being placed in the home to begin with. Another issue for kids is the reality of their financial options. Most children will not have the funds to pay for secondary education or have the ability to live with family.


These are some of the contributing factors that can lead to a lack of success for kids becoming productive and independent young adults in the community. By providing continual educational and guidance-based support programs, we believe we can help improve their overall chances to attend a secondary education institution or secure a decent job. This success translates to a more positive future - one with more choices and freedom.


Our NPO creates programs that help promote:


  • Digital literacy that will expand their technical skills and keep them current with today’s technology and unlock more options for secondary education or a job.デジタル読解力、それは彼らの技術的スキルを広げ、今日のテクノロジーにより彼らを最新の環境に置き、中等教育や仕事へのより多くの選択へと解き放ちます。
  • Communication skills through language training, writing programs, cultural exchanges and a summer arts camp that improve a child’s ability to effectively communicate and engage with others in a positive way.


  • Connectedness with others in the community and around the world through mentoring programs and online exchange programs.メンタリングプログラムやオンライン交流プログラムなどを通した、コミュニティーの中や世界中にいる人々(他者)とのつながり。

YOU can get involved by volunteering your time. Share your experience or skill sets to help guide children on their path to becoming productive and independent young adults. There is no greater gift!

No one will know how big my house is or how much money I have in 100 years, but if you help one child today, this will last for generations to come. Jerry Lewis
