◇Care Packageご寄付お願い
Please donate for our Care Package Project


Due to the long-term effects of COVID-19, young people who had graduated from childrens’ homes at the age of 18 and started living by themselves independently are in great need. To support them, childrens’ homes are putting more effort than ever in connecting with them, hearing about their situation, and providing them supplies on a regular basis.

In response to these community needs, Hands-on Tokyo is proceeding with a project to deliver care packages (relief supplies) containing groceries and daily necessities donated by our volunteers to the childrens’ homes.
Please donate for the Care Package project.
If you would like to support us financially, please visit the Hands On Tokyo website page below.

Your donation of 8,000 yen would cover a care package for 1 youth in need. Through our partners, we would like to send monthly (or bi-monthly) packages with daily foods and necessary items. 

We Need Volunteers!

Launched several new projects to meet the needs of our community.

■Helping out with after-school cleaning at Aiiku Gakuen

For more than half a century, the Aiku School for Special Needs has played a pioneering role in helping with the education of children with developmental delays. Schools for children with these challenges have traditionally been hard to find in Japan. For example, At Aiiku Gakuen, children can freely express themselves not only with paper and at their desks, but also on the floor and walls by drawing, playing with clay, etc. Because of these activities, it is a challenge for the teachers to clean the school every day. Volunteers are asked to help the teachers clean up, once a week, for one hour at a time.

Location: Aiiku Gakuen (5-6-8, Minami-Azabu, Minato-ku)
Time: Thursday, 14:30-15:30

■ストレッチ & 体操プログラム



■Virtual Stretch & Exercise Program

At many partner homes (Senior Homes, Children’s Homes, After-school class for children with disabilities),  outings have been severely restricted due to the long-lasting pandemic. We are looking for volunteers who will implement the program about once a month, after having a training session by professional trainers.  They will teach us a simple program with simple movements.

Location: Home
Time: We will contact you at a later date.
* Please participate in the online meeting with professional trainers

One of Hands On Tokyo’s most important concerns, is “what can we do now to support our community,” and how can we support that community as quickly as possible.
◆LIVES キッチンカー「OOPEN!」
LIVES Food Truck "OOPEN!" 
Shopping Project for the Elderly Community 

By Aya Higa - Board Member, OOPEN! Project Leader 



「OOPEN!」 は農場から新鮮な野菜をこの団地に持って行き、ボランティアはジャガイモ、大根、玉ねぎ、キャベツ、にんじんなどの重い野菜を部屋のドアまで運ぶお手伝いをします。入居者の中には、車いすの方や、うまく歩けない方、若い人と話をしたい方などがいらっしゃいます。この活動は隔週の土曜日に行われます。入居者の皆さんはカレンダーに印をつけて、「OOPEN!」が来る日を楽しみにしてくださっているそうです! 

The LIVES food truck "OOPEN!", where staff with disabilities and volunteers enjoy working together, has been selling delicious lunch meals. Besides selling lunches, we started from June, a shopping project for the elderly community in Tokyo.  

This is a compound with 15 apartment buildings, where most of the tenants are in their 70s and 80s, and some of them live by themselves. Their apartment buildings are about 30 minute-walk from the train station and grocery shopping is a challenge for some of them. 

OOPEN goes to them with fresh vegetables from the farm, and the volunteers help carry the heavy vegetables, such as potatoes, daikon radish, onions, cabbage, and carrots to their apartment doors. Some of the elderly people are in wheelchairs, some cannot walk properly, and some simply want to talk to younger people. This is a bi-weekly project on Saturdays, and the people at the compound mark their calendars and look forward to the day of the food truck!!
