◆ Project Overview
○First Japan Voucher System for Outside School Education
We offer the voucher of which use is limited to outside the school education service. Since it is not cash payment, we can surely offer education opportunities to children. Children are able to receive variety of education services including private supplementary schools, cramming schools, sports activities, learning and field services.
○Support of Student Volunteers
To support children’s growth who received our vouchers, a college student volunteer becomes an adviser and copes with the consultation about learning and daily life like an older brother or sister of the children.
○Projects by Citizen
Children’s issue is not a problem caused by their family but a problem of the Whole Society. We solicit contributions from citizens and also we have monthly membership program to support children continuously.

Speech by a 7th grader (English subtitle)
◆ Voices of Children(Chance for Children Kansai)
“I was able to study hard when I remind that I was supported by someone in this society.”
When I feel hard to study, I imagine a person who donated for me. Then, I am able to study harder. In a visible part, I was able to go to the cramming school by vouchers, moreover, in a invisible part, I took power to study by recognizing that someone unknown in this society supported me.
