What we need now is your action.
Here, your thoughts take shape.
We are an organization that supports children living in children’s homes(orphanages).
These are children that have suffered physical, mental, sexual abuse, neglect at the hands of adults. Our organization is connected to children’s homes(orphanages) across Japan, and every year we donate money to these children.
Our foundation was established by related parties who work directly in the field with the goal of protecting these children.


What is an children’s homes(orphanages)?
An children’s home is a type of child welfare facility, as described in the Child Welfare Act.
Article 41 of the Child Welfare Act indicates that “A foster home shall be a facility intended for admitting,
and providing foster care for children without a guardian, abused children,
and other children in need of foster care in terms of their environment,
as well as intended for providing consulting and other assistance such as teaching self-reliance to those who have become independent.”
Locations of children’s homes(orphanages) are approved by each prefectural governor,
based on the designation of the Director of the Child Consultation Center.
The Present Situation and Problems upon Leaving
the children’s homes(orphanages)
While caring for children currently at these facilities, staff also take the time to listen to children who come back to visit to discuss their problems and concerns.
Money is one of the most common issues.
The reason why is because the children who graduated from the facility
no longer can receive government support.
These children must cover all their living expenses and school expenses by themselves.

The Ideal Form of Support as Recommended
by the People who Work in children’s homes(orphanages)
Our desire is to collect donations for children who will graduate from children’s homes(orphanages).
We, the staff who work in these facilities, ask that you consider the children who are approaching graduation.
Many graduates are snubbed by society and left to fend for themselves in unfavorable environments.
Despite the harsh circumstances, these children strive to make a life for themselves, pushing towards a brighter tomorrow.
Please donate to such children.
What kind of organization is the Japan Children's Home Foundation?
This organization is comprised of people who are seriously focused on making these children’s dreams a reality. Some of the members work at children’s homes(orphanages). We establish and enact projects which help children’s dreams come true.

Administrative Director Akihiro Hongo
Back when I was a student, I had a friend who had been abused and deeply hurt by his father. At that time, I gathered as much information as I could, wondering if there was anything I could do for my friend.
I still remember feeling frustrated because I couldn't do anything at that time. From that experience,
I studied psychology and social welfare at university, and volunteered at children’s homes(orphanages).
I gained knowledge and deepened my understanding of the current situation of children’s homes(orphanages) in Japan.
Upon graduation from university, I have been involved with children in children’s homes(orphanages), working as a child instructor.
