Outreach and Service Projects

Outreach and Service Projects are a major goal of the Women's Fellowship. The majority of our fundraising proceeds are donated to numerous needy groups throughout Japan and Asia, particularly to those projects supporting Japanese women, children and disadvantaged people. There are many volunteer opportunities in our organization, as well as the Rice Project.

Sekoryo Children's Home - This Home in association with the Salvation Army was built in 1984 to provide accommodation and care to homeless children in the Tokyo area. TUCWF sponsors two programs - the Birthday Sponsorship and the Annual Fun Day. For the Birthday Sponsorship program, a birthday gift of the child's request is purchased with the sponsor's donation of 4,000 yen. A sponsor's drive takes place each October to recruit sponsors for the following year. However, new sponsors are needed throughout the year, as new children enter the Home. The Sekoryo Fun Day is held annually in Spring. More than 15 member families participate in providing a day of fun and laughter for their assigned Sekoryo children. These two very worthwhile programs have been running for more ten years, and depend totally on the generosity of TUCWF and TUC members. For details in becoming a birthday sponsor and/or host family, please contact Reiko Takahashi.

At the September & October programs, we will be having sign-ups for the Birthday Sponsor Program. Each sponsor will be asked to donate ¥4,000 which will be used by the committee to purchase a birthday gift for a child at the home. If you are already a birthday sponsor, you will have the opportunity to sign up for the same child next year. Each sponsor will receive a brochure that tells about the Sekoryo Children's Home and the child that they are sponsoring. Please consider getting involved in this program, as it's a wonderful opportunity to bless a needy child.

TUC Rice Project - We make and deliver onigiri (rice cakes) to the homeless in Shibuya and Yoyogi Park. Monday through Friday, we need people to make the onigiri mornings starting around 9 a.m. What a great way to start your day - helping the homeless while enjoying each other's company in the kitchen. We also need people to deliver the onigiri to Shibuya at 5:30 am. If you are interested in helping, please contact the Tokyo Union Church at 03-3400-0047 or email to tuc@gol.com.
