Peace Warabe Japan is a new project to provide support for education and basic living being
undertaken by Peace Winds Japan, a recognized Non-Profit Organization that has provided
assistance in and outside of Japan to people suffering from conflicts, disasters, and poverty.
What Peace Warabe Japan is Seeking
Peace Warabe Japan desires a world where children are free from the threat of conflict and poverty, where they can remain hopeful and maintain their dignity. We seek to help children, who are our future, to realize their dreams regardless of politics and economics and to be the ones those who help make an even better society.
Establish the Peace Winds Global Citizens School During 2020
As one of the first projects for Peace Warabe, we intend to establish a school, with dormitories, in 2020 for young people, ages 16-19, from Japan and abroad, with 15-30 students per academic year. Some of the sites we are currently looking at to establish the school includes Jinseki Kogen-cho in Hiroshima Prefecture and Kamijima-cho, Ehime Prefecture, both of which where PWJ currently has ongoing community development projects. In 2018, Peace Warabe plans on conducting a summer school in Jinseki Kogen-cho which will serve as a test case for the curriculum we ultimately hope to develop. Based on the anticipated success of the summer school, we will continue to work on developing an effective educational institution. Our goal is to accept destitute children who have been unable to receive further education due to conflict, disasters, or other unfortunate reasons, provide a high level of education, and work with them to become people who can help solve the various problems affecting the world.
For example, if we have everyone’s support, we can:
Establish a SchoolRefurbish School Buildings for Children to Learn and Build Dormitories for Them to Live
Provide ScholarshipsProvide Scholarships for Children to Study Who Are Unable to Attend School Due to Economic Difficulties
EducationSeek to Establish an IB (International Baccalaureate) School
Donate Using the Furusato Nozei (Hometown Tax) System

You can write-off the amount of your donation, minus 2,000 yen, from your income tax and local tax, as well as receive a gift from Peace Winds Japan commensurate with the amount of the donation (there is some paperwork required).
