Ashinaga "Kokoro Juku" residential facilities
Families of children who have lost parents often struggle financially. Tuition and living costs hinder children in these families from attending college and university. To provide dormitory space where these college/university students can stay at low cost, Ashinaga has established “Kokoro Juku” (“Heart Academy”) residential facilities in both Tokyo and Kobe. These offer social guidance and various programs designed to improve reading, writing, and public speaking abilities. The goal is to help students develop into responsible adults who will contribute to society from a base of kindness and compassion, a broad perspective, and an international mindset.
