* ■ Comment from Sakura Yamamoto *

It was my first time fundraising and there were a lot of things I didn’t understand, but with the support I received, I was able to successfully conduct the fundraiser. I’m really grateful.
All of the people who donated were warm and touched. Some people donated because they felt it was no one else’s problem, and I was reminded once again of the seriousness of the fact that there are many children who don’t have a place at school. We hope that this donation will bring smiles to the faces of the children at the free school. I would like to continue to do my best through fundraising activities to make the dreams of not only the children at the free school, but also many other people, come true.

* ■Comment from NPO Chairman Hiroto Nakato *
I remember feeling very warm when Sakura told me that she wanted to raise money for children.
They started their activities immediately after that, and I am truly happy that they have donated the funds they have raised.
We will carefully use the donations we receive to provide a good education to children.
We will continue to support Sakura-san in expanding her activities to help various people achieve what they want to do, and the warm-hearted Sakura-san is confident that she will be able to make that future a reality. I am.
This time, thank you very much!

* ■Feelings behind “Fig” *

“Fig” means “fruit without flowers,” meaning that the flowers cannot be seen from the outside. But in fact, flowers are blooming inside. We named this flower “fig” because we believe that the way this flower blooms is similar to that of children, who hide their uniqueness and creativity in places that adults cannot see.
We tend to judge people based on their visible results or talent. However, I believe that everyone has great potential, even if it is not visible on the surface. “Figs” is a project that continues to think about education in rural areas and believes in the potential of children who are blooming within.
