Sound Development of the Next Generation Education

School Construction Support Project






Based on the principle that basic education is indispensable for the realization of a peaceful society, since 2000 the Foundation has been supporting the building of schools in five Asian countries in which educational facilities are underdeveloped. Up until now we have utilized donations from nationwide in Japan as well as the AEON 1% Club’s contributions, to complete the construction of a current total of approximately 416 schools. This is not limited to constructing school buildings, but also includes soft aspects such as the provision of water supply systems and training of teaching staff. We also organize events, including a concert of nursery rhymes sung by Japanese singing sisters Saori Yuki and Sachiko Yasuda at a school opening ceremony, and hold exchange meetings to share the recipients’ joy with participating customers from Japan.
