A FUTURE FOR YOUTH
The increasing complexity and diversity of household and family environments can lead to many problems in schools, including bullying, truancy, and classroom disruption.
Resolving these problems should not be solely the responsibility of families and schools; communities and society need to work together to support children.
We work toward a society in which the children and young people of the next generation have hope for the future and pursue their own goals.

What We Do
- The Nippon Foundation Kids Support Project was launched to support children. Focusing on childhood poverty, it also includes support for special adoption programs and seriously ill children, and scholarships for children who are raised in childcare facilities.
- The Nippon Foundation has established a scholarship program for children raised in child care facilities, to enable them to attend college and participate fully in student life.
- The Magokoro Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to students whose families have been victims of serious crimes, and because of resulting financial hardship would otherwise be unable to continue their studies.
- 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.
- JVPF cultivates and supports social enterprises by providing medium- to long-term funding and through the application of business skills to support their management.
- We identify children who have talents but cannot adapt to today’s educational environment and avoid going to school, and provide them with ongoing support for their studies and daily lives.
- The Nippon Foundation is proactively working to address childhood poverty, so that the home environment in which children are born will not hold them back in the future.
