Why has this program launched?
When I was a kid, I was prone to sickness, I always complained “Why only me? “. But I got to understand that there were lots of people who are suffering much more than me in the world.
When I turned on the TV, there were a still 5 year-old-boy who was lying on the ground without any movement, just many flies were on his body. He was just breathing with his eyes closed. He was so skinny with all skin and bones, but only his stomach was big. I realized that malnutrition caused his stomach to be big. It is said that over 500 children in African countries pass away every day.
That was shocking for me and made me feel ashamed about minor complaints. It was at that time when I realized that I would like to be the one who can help those people.
As times went by, I came to the Philippines to study English in 2013.
I was not supposed to be associated to this country so much. But I met lots of people who were suffering from poverty, and they seemed to still have HOPE and were striving to get the chance as soon as they can.
It inspired me a lot. Helping or supporting many countries is difficult for me financially, but I had an epiphany to help children who still have hope in the this country through my experiences. And this is the beginning of my project to help children. I name this program YUME scholarship. It means DREAM in Japanese.
By the way, after the coronavirus situation, many people are put in a tight spot. It’s also a hard time for me to manage the company this time. However, I am willing to execute this project NOW. Let’s chase YUME(the dream) together!
