Support our charity partner: Ashinaga in Japan


As we look to help increase the growth and prosperity of the LNG and Gas markets in Japan, we also look to support local charity partners, to deliver funding which benefits the disadvantaged in the wider community.

For nearly half a century, the Ashinaga Movement has striven to support orphaned students through education and engender yasashisa (優しさ), or compassion, across Japan. With the generous support of people here, Ashinaga has been able to help almost 100,000 orphaned students continue their education.

Even so, severe economic and educational disparities exist for students in Japan who have lost one or more parents. Some 53% of orphaned students give up on higher education as a result of financial barriers, and over 25% of those affected work part-time jobs to support their families. Too often these challenges dissuade otherwise capable students from continuing their studies, resulting in fewer job prospects and inter-generational socio-economic hardship.

While the love and support of a parent cannot be replaced, Ashinaga provides Japanese students with the financial and emotional support necessary for them to progress academically and realize their life goals.

What we provide:

  • Access to education through financial aid, international outreach projects and research & advocacy
  • Emotional support through support facilities for younger children
  • Empowerment by establishing educational and residential facilities for student to help support studies
