2DOGS supports World Vision Japan Child Sponsorship Program.
In the near future, Japan needs to open its doors to more immigrants to sustain the present level of service and welfare. By supporting and offering a deeper understanding of Japan to children in developing countries we hope to help portray a positive image of Japan and create an interest in Japan for these children. After World War II, our grandparents and parents made a lasting impact on many Asian countries by helping to build various infrastructure such as dams and bridges. As a result Japan is known in many places for its high quality of construction and generosity in helping other nations.
We have decided to focus our CSV activities on helping children achieve a good education. We also encourage our clients to join us in order to create a better Japan and a better world for the future.
2Dogs supports the World Vision Japan Child Sponsorship Program that helps children in developing countries. For more information, please visit: www.worldvision.org
