Reference

Example 1: Grant for the yellow hat project (securing safe school route/preventing traffic accidents)

Grant was given to set up "Traffic safety instruction project" in the region where
people's awareness for traffic safety was not enough for the rapid expansion of
vehicles, resulting in sharply increased traffic accidents. Posters created by
children were placed at schools on the national roads, temples, restaurants, and
agricultural stores so that many would see them. "Traffic safety lessons" were
also held and yellow hats were distributed to children at schools. Activities to
raise awareness of traffic safety started across the region.

Example 2: Grant for the employment assistance program for the people with visual impairment

Grant was made to support purchasing PCs and peripheral equipment for the NPO which assists people with visual impairment to find a job through information
technology (IT) training. The equipment purchased by the funds was installed in the local partner organizations. Training skills were shared so that all trainees could
be provided with the same training as in urban areas. The fund supported the
establishment of a program which assists people with visual impairment in the
remote areas who had difficulty in finding a job.

Example 3: Grant for networking to prevent human trafficking

Grant was given for strengthening cooperation to support victims and their
rehabilitation program in the regions where child trafficking was a serious problem.
