Waseda X Ashinaga is an interim student chapter of Ashinaga – one of the biggest international non-profit organizations in Japan that champions the pursuit for the higher education of orphaned youth, nurtures vulnerable children through the provision of emotional and psychological support, and bridges students to a myriad of opportunities to harness their potential through overseas training and education. Our purpose as a student chapter is to further the work of Ashinaga from within and beyond Waseda University. We are set to become an official student chapter and initiate activities from the fall of 2021. Our activities will include fund-raising events, digital and physical campaigns to raise awareness, and creating projects that align with our shared initiatives. We welcome anyone with a warm heart, an open mind, a proactive attitude, and an international outlook to join us in jumpstarting the student chapter.
