To support the independence of children living in foster homes

Rakuten and numerous partners are joining hands to create opportunities for the next generations to have a brighter future.
By making the best of Rakuten's network and Internet services, several initiatives are conducted to exchange with the 30,000 children living in the 600 foster homes of Japan, and support their independence.

STORY

01

Children living in foster homes

In Japan, about 50,000 children live today without their parents for various reasons. Among them, about 30,000 live in foster homes.

02

Independence after graduating from high school

After turning 18, teenagers have to leave their foster homes and to become independent. They then face a series of issues new to them, such as renting an apartment or getting ready for university.

03

Our initiatives

By collaborating with various actors, several initiatives like "Rakuten Santa Project" were launched for Rakuten to support and communicate with children leaving the nest of their foster homes to become members of society.
