This Year's Chocolate Project Has Begun!

We're happy to announce that our annual chocolate project, or “Choco-Pro” for short,
has officially begun!

What is Choco-Pro exactly?
Essentially, it's a unique opportunity for FTCJ members to challenge themselves creatively while also helping change the world!
 
Targeted specifically for our members in junior high school,
they are given complete creative control of this project.
Everything from the creation of package design and advertisements to packaging
and selling the chocolate is completely up to them. The chocolate sold is called
“Amani” and is provided by Chidoriya, a well know sweets maker in Japan.
The proceeds raised are then donated for the purpose of supporting the Kenyan city of Narok.
 
New members began planning this year's Choco-Pro last October and have decided on Printems Ginza as the location at which they will be selling their chocolate. After much trial and error, they are steadily getting ready for the big day!

About Amani Chocolate
 The chocolate we sell is called Amani. 
Amani is Swahili for “peace”. Swahili,
by the way, is one of the official languages of Kenya.

 

Although the chocolate we sell remains the same, every year the packaging and tags are redesigned, giving each year's Choco-Pro it's own unique look and style. Amani chocolate comes in two flavors, milk chocolate and strawberry.
Each package is 200 yen and contains three pieces of chocolate.
 




Where Does The Money Go?
 


This year 68% of all proceeds will go to the Kenyan city of Narok where it will be used to support and encourage things like occupational and leadership training.
 





About Kenya And Narok
 
Kenya is a country located in Africa. As of 2013 an estimated 56% of all Kenyans were living on one dollar or less a day. In the city of Narok, 1/3 of all children are born malnourished and/or physically under developed. Donating helps more than just the current situation, it also helps change the behavior and thinking of local residents. In this way, our effort and support can have a long lasting effect on the city and it's people.
 
Being able to support Kenya's proud culture, customs and traditions is one the benefits of donating to Narok but our main goal is to get young people to think more economically. Learning how to budget is crucial among other skills and one of our focuses. With the money donated we can encourage occupational and leadership training as well. Furthermore, it supports the production of handmade crafts made in Kenya. These crafts are then sold in Japan by FTCJ and the proceeds go back to the people.

Please support our project to help build classrooms and schools in the Philippines!


In November of 2013, the Philippines was directly struck by Super Typhoon Hayain. The enormous, large scale typhoon made its way through the central island of Leyte leaving approximately 6,000 dead, 18,000 injured, and 1,600 missing. To make matters worse, over 70,000 houses were severely damaged, forcing families to live perpetually without homes in emergency shelters. Since then, the Philippines has been struck by numerous other large scale typhoons making the rebuilding of homes and schools a long and arduous task.

 

One of the areas continuously affected is Ormoc City in the Philippine province of Leyte. In Ormoc City, the lack of classrooms at a particular public elementary school has become a problem for local children wishing to attend school. And, because of repeated damage from typhoons, the local government has not been able to secure the necessary funds to build additional classrooms.

 

Therefore, together with the local government of Ormoc City, FTCJ is hoping to help with the construction of classrooms for the elementary school. To date, and thanks to your support, we have been able to raise money for this project. Unfortunately, because of weakened exchange rates, we have found ourselves in need of an additional 600,000 yen

 

We humbly ask for your support to ensure that the children who have been affected time and time again by these typhoons can have a chance to continue their studies and further their education.

 

We are currently accepting donations via bank transfer at your convenience. When making your bank transfer, please make sure to specify the purpose of your donation!
