Charities we have supported
NADIA (1,650,000 yen)
NADIA was formed in 2012 after the Great East Japan Earthquake to help rejuvenate disaster-affected communities and individuals in the northeast of Japan. NADIA used donations to support a Soccer Friendly between children from that region and Tokyo. The event helped the children learn virtues associated with sport and grow as young individuals.
Child Fund Pass it Back (1,500,000 yen)
Rugby World Cup charity partner ChildFund Pass it Back, which supports children and young people in disadvantaged communities in Laos, Vietnam, the Philippines, Timor-Leste, Cambodia and Japan, using tag rugby to teach children a range of life skills. Asia is home to 60% of the world’s youth. Many children lack the opportunities, knowledge and skills they need to succeed amid rapid change. ChildFund Pass it Back endeavours to inspire change so young people can "pass back” what they learn to their communities.
