YouMeWe NPO (YMW), was organized in 2018 to empower, educate, and inspire children residing in foster homes in Japan, assisting them with the opportunity to become productive, motivated members of society. The objective of this Scholarship is to assist eligible children living in Japanese institutional Children's Homes who choose to go on to higher education. Initial funding for this scholarship was from a long-time friend and donor Mr.Mark Bell of New York City, a true Digital Citizen.
Many of our kids do not have the funds to pay for education in addition to housing, food, etc. Working long hours while attending higher education is a constant struggle for students who live paycheck to paycheck.
The YouMeWe Scholarship will provide students the opportunity to attend higher education. Students who receive scholarships have fewer financial concerns, can spend less time working and more time studying, allowing for a greater chance of success.
Students attending higher education will see an increase in salary and employment possibilities, while reducing the burden of repaying loans.
