ABOUT LIGHTS ON CHILDREN

Lights On Children is an NPO dedicated to help the children in need of social support. The involvement of businesses and individuals is a key factor in our activities.
Here, “the children in need of social support” refers to the children whose parent is unable to raise them because he/she is either too abusive, too poor or too sick. There are more than 35,000 children in Japan in such conditions, and they are raised in children’s homes, infant homes, households of foster parents and the like (social care).
Lights On Children is contributing to the development and independence of such children through our projects.
Teach & LearnEducational and training projects for children in social care, such as PC lecture and on-the-job-training
Raising AwarenessRaising awareness by giving a seminar in companies and running our own online media "Shakai de Kosodate .com"
Connect & GatherPromoting interactions between children's homes and businesses/individuals so that we can tackle the issues together. Our own multi-purpose space LOCer's ROOM is the hub for such interactions.
For details of each project, please see the project’s page.
These projects are being funded and/or supported by businesses and individuals who have given approval to us. Donate online.
