Technology support for children in orphanages


The majority of the 24,000 children in the approximately 600 orphanages nationwide were abused by their own parents.

Even if they are able to find a place to live in an orphanage, they are forced to leave the orphanage (become independent) at the age of 18 with little or no access to computers or the Internet, and there are more and more cases of them falling into poverty thereafter.
In order to help these children broaden their future career options, the YMCA has been working to develop a STEM education program for children in orphanages around the country.

An ideathon for using technology to improve the future by the children from orphanages

児童養護施設の子どもたちによるテクノロジーを活用して未来を良くするアイデアソンを開催します。(2022年4月)優秀なアイデアを出した子どもたちには、PCやFire HDなどを賞品として贈呈します。子どもたちがアマゾンのエンジニアに触れる機会を得ることで、将来に希望を持って社会に出られるようになると信じます。応援をよろしくお願いします。

*本企画は、アマゾン ウェブ サービス(AWS)より協賛をいただいています。

We would like to hold an “idea-thon” for these children, asking them for ideas on how to use technology to make things better around orphanages and abused children. (April 2022) We would like the children who come up with the best ideas to receive a PC, Fire HD, etc. as prizes. By having the opportunity to output their ideas, and by having the chance to meet Amazon engineers, children will be able to go out into the world with more hope for the future. Thank you all for your support!
