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 from primary through high school and begin to consider their future options. Adding to the difficulties are the large number of children dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder stemming from various forms of abuse or poverty that have resulted in the child being placed into care 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.
