Summary

For Global Giving's little x little Matching Campaign (3/23 - 3/27) we are fundraising for the Beach, and Arakawa river cleanups. This is just one of Youth Impact's current activities. So, help Hands On Tokyo teens discover a future of social change, and realize their potential. Hands On Tokyo is dedicated to providing meaningful volunteer opportunities for these students, transforming them into community leaders.

Challenge

The Japanese government estimates that over 100,000 tons of trash, from the ocean, washes up on it's shores every year. This doesn't even include the litter that people leave on and around the beach from beach goers.

Solution

We are planning a safe youth-led Beach Cleanup, where students will go to the beaches around Tokyo and compete to see who can pick up the most trash and litter. After the beach cleanup, we will do a similar project at the Arakawa river. An area that was ravaged by Typhoons last year and is still in need of a lot of cleanup projects.

Long-Term Impact

These projects will not only help improve the environment in and around our community, but it will also give the youth volunteers a sense of accomplishment and leadership experience. It is also a chance to empower our youth volunteers to continue to give back to the community in a safe way, during the current difficult COVID-19 outbreak situation. We are planning to add more projects in the future!
