A Midsummer Day's Joy:

Basketball Court Project at Children's Home


On a scorching midsummer day, we held a VF Japan-sponsored project at a childrens home in Tokyo. Due to delays in construction caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the much-anticipated basketball court was finally completed! We enjoyed playing basketball with the children who had been eagerly waiting for this day, while the younger children had fun with games like ring toss and super ball scooping. We enjoyed pizza together for lunch, and for dessert, we decorated cookies and muffins to our liking. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the VF Japan employees and the missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who joined as volunteers!





真夏を思わせる暑さの日、都内の児童養護施設でVFジャパンのスポンサープロジェクトを実施しました。コロナ禍で工事が遅れ、長い間待ち望んでいたバスケットボールコートがようやく完成しました。この日を楽しみにしていた子どもたちとボランティアの皆さんは 一緒にバスケットボールを楽しみ、幼い子どもたちは輪投げやスーパーボールすくいなどのゲームを楽しみました。ランチにはみんなでピザをいただき、デザートにはクッキーやマフィンを自分好みにデコレーションして楽しみました。ボランティアで来てくださったVFジャパンの社員の皆さん、末日聖徒イエスキリスト教会のミッショナリーの皆さん、本当にありがとうございました!

Nishimachi International Schools Initiative:

Join Us in Making a Difference





Despite support from the government and NGOs, those without stable housing continue to face challenges due to social stigma and limited welfare programs. Recently, we were able to distribute 100 care packages, generously created by the volunteers from Nishimachi International School, to those without stable housing in Shinjuku Ward and Adachi Ward.

Warmth and Joy:

Highlights from Our Recent Event at the Mother and Child Support Facility


In Tokyo, as the summer sunshine begins to make its presence felt, we held a wonderful event at the Mother and Child Support Facility. With the warm-hearted support from all our Cornerstone supporters, we were able to provide daily necessities and food to families currently living in the facility, as well as those who have moved out and started new lives.


We are especially thrilled to share that we prepared hats for the children for the upcoming hot summer. Despite the urgent call for help just before the event, many supporters immediately responded, allowing us to purchase a large number of hats. It was truly heart-warming to be able to provide support that aligns with Japans four seasons. Seeing the childrens smiles as they chose their new hats touched our hearts deeply. The proud expressions of the children wearing their new hats and the joyful faces of their mothers were simply unforgettable.


Additionally, members of the online salon from Asakura Shokos Aging Research Institute received a workshop under the guidance of professional instructors in preparation for the hand massage project for this visit. The lovely scents and the relaxing time were greatly appreciated, with many mothers expressing their heartfelt gratitude. One of the dedicated volunteers shared a touching message, saying that volunteering offers opportunities to learn new things. Its truly inspiring!


That's not all! We also treated the mothers to delicious sweets from Patisserie Yuki. A special thank you to Patisserie Yuki for their cooperation. It brought us great joy to see the mothers relax and enjoy the sweets.


This day was filled with smiles and joy, thanks to the cooperation and generosity of so many people. We sincerely thank all our supporters from the bottom of our hearts. We look forward to continuing this journey together, spreading warmth and kindness every step of the way.







また、お母さんたちには、Patisserie Yukiの美味しいスイーツも楽しんでいただきました。協力してくださったPatisserie Yukiに感謝を申し上げます。お母さんたちがリラックスしてスイーツを楽しむ姿を見ることができて、とても嬉しかったです。




Annual Donation Event at National Azabu


Once again this year, people gathered to spread love at National Azabu over two wonderful days. Donations of staple food, essential items, and feminine hygiene products were collected to support single-parent families and recent graduates of children's homes.

This event has become a cherished tradition, with many community members contributing their part.

We are deeply grateful for the support from the following organizations. Their unwavering dedication and commitment to our cause have been instrumental in making this gathering possible. The warmth and hospitality they provide create a welcoming environment that brings our community together, fostering a spirit of generosity and compassion. Without their gracious assistance, this event would not have been the success that it was. We are profoundly thankful for their partnership and look forward to continuing our collaborative efforts in the future.

Also, students from Nishimachi International School took the initiative to collect items at their school before the event. They dashed over to National Azabu during their break time, donations in hand, and then sprinted back to class. Talk about dedication and a good workout! What a remarkable effort by these energetic young people!


Thank you to everyone who contributed and made this event a success. Together, we are making a positive difference in our community.

In children's homes, most people leave and start living on their own when they turn 18. This April, 23 individuals from partner homes of cornerstone I•SHI•ZU•E embarked on a fresh chapter, including two graduates from a children's home affected by the Noto earthquake in January. We were able to prepare care packages along with about 200 volunteers from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to welcome the graduates to their new beginnings. 

We express heartfelt gratitude to all the volunteers.


Each graduate chose from a selection including a rice cooker, electric pot, microwave, toaster oven, dryer, and futon set. Additionally, we provided essential kitchen utensils and groceries, coupled with sincere messages from devoted volunteers.


We stand steadfast in our support for these graduates, earnestly wishing them joy and fulfillment in their futures.

Everyone enjoyed free shopping with the items generously donated. Items donated included clothing, food, and daily necessities. While moms enjoyed shopping, children were having fun with volunteers playing games and drawing.


We received a message from the home:


'Thank you for coming to our home yesterday. The children and especially mothers were looking forward to the event! Clothing can be expensive and children quickly outgrow them. Mothers often can't afford clothes for themselves. We would like to send our appreciation for your generosity.
