There are many opportunities to help others, even at home! We believe that every human being should follow their heart and be aware of being part of the world. It is said that ‘when butterflies flap their wings in Asia, they stir up a breeze in America’. Love has no boundaries. We have decided to take care of the future of children who have no opportunity to go to school, and people who find it difficult to survive due to a lack of water in poorer countries. If you want to follow the flight of this butterfly, know that is supported by love and great determination.
