Kumamoto Gakuen Earthquake Recovery Assistance Fund

Many of the students, faculty and staff of Kumamoto Gakuen have suffered greatly as a result of the recent earthquakes.  In addition, several facilities on our campus have been damaged and will require major repairs and reinforcements before they can be used again.  Nonetheless, we have been happy to make buildings that were deemed to be safe available and to provide assistance to members of the local community, particularly persons with handicaps, requiring shelter and other services.


We wish to express our sincere appreciation to the many graduates, universities, businesses, organizations and individuals who have expressed concern and provided assistance to us since the earthquakes first struck.  In response to many inquiries about donations, we have established an account to accept contributions that will help us meet the costs of recovery.


  1. Purpose

Contributions to the fund will be used to help our university students, junior high and high school students, and children attending our kindergarten to continue their educations successfully and to repair facilities on our campus in order to regain the educational and research capacities lost in the disaster.
