Use of Funds

Provide healthy school lunches for youth in the Philippines

40 yen / meal (Generally used for meals but may be used for school supplies as well, such as 20 yen for pencils, and 800 yen for school uniforms. The use is based on the school’s needs. )

There is generally no school feeding system in the Philippines. But in the poor community, many children go to school without breakfast or even without lunch. It affect their health and also concentration during the class. 6 years old child we have known were sometimes crying in the morning due to hunger. Walking more than 30 minutes with empty stomach was too tough. Her mother lost her word to encourage the boy because she couldn’t afford to buy anything for his breakfast or lunch.

More than 700,000 children in the Philippines is not going to elementary school, one of the major reason is their financial situation in their family. To protect their human rights and make sure the opportunity to go to school, providing work to their parents, providing scholarship, school supplies and also feeding to kids are really helpful.
Out of 700,000, we have focused on helping about 500 children in the Philippines.

In such situation, a meal with meat and vegetable is really a good motivator for children to go to school. They barely eat chicken in their home, so they are really happy when they were served fried chicken with some vegetables!
