Child Funds
What our Child Funds Activity strives for ...  
With our Child Fund Activity we like to keep our relationship in a “face to face” distance. We understand that there are places and people who need support not only within our country but also outside of Japan. Our standards for selecting a case for the Child Funds project is capability of establishing the “face to face” relationship with an applicant. Through Child fund project we believe in not only providing financial support but also to learn background issues and work together for better solutions.

Bring light to every child’s future!
Bright future waits for kids. Unfortunately there are kids who don’t have enough to eat, no parents (caretakers), unable to go to school, don’t have place to live (home)...Well-deserved rights are ripped away from them, and moreover some are living with threat for their life. Regrettably all of us are partially responsible for these dreadful facts. Therefore (To acts on these dreadful facts) SINAPIS established Child Funds to provide support for organizations works for the children. The funds are given to qualified programs and organizations. Qualifications are organizations and programs that work for; fulfillment of basic needs for children, and to establish societies with promised future for children. Qualifications are not limited to within Japan but also for other programs and organizations outside of Japan. Once SINAPIS select a qualified candidate for the funds, we also like to keep working together through their activities.
