Support for Seriously Ill Children
We support families facing the challenge of caring for seriously ill children, through projects including the construction of Japan’s first community-supported TSURUMI Children’s Hospice in Osaka, in partnership with UNIQLO Co., Ltd.
Special Adoption Programs
This project aims to create a society in which babies who cannot be raised by their biological parents can grow up in a loving household through special adoption programs for children.
Addressing Child Poverty
We are proactively working to address childhood poverty, so that the home environment in which children are born will not hold them back in the future.
Elimination of Leprosy
We work around the world to eradicate leprosy as a public health threat and to do away with the stigma and discrimination associated with the disease.
The Nippon Foundation Dream Scholarship
We have established a scholarship program for children raised in child care facilities, to enable them to attend college and participate fully in student life.
The Nippon Foundation’s specially equipped welfare vehicles enrich the lives of older and disabled persons who have limited mobility. As of March 2016, we had donated a total of about 40,000 vehicles.
