Over Half a Century of Support
750,000+ volunteers have helped Ashinaga carry out its mission over 55+ years
Thanks to the over 750,000 volunteers who have volunteered to stand with us during street fundraising, volunteer in the P-Walk, or for tsudoi, we have been able to support unimaginable numbers of students.
