About Project

Many children born in developing countries have little hope for the future. The e-Education Project tries to create an environment in which such children can truly reach their potential.

University students from Japan research local educational needs and then find the best teachers in each target country to record their lessons on DVDs. The DVDs are then shown to disadvantaged children. By providing educational opportunities, the e-Education Project helps to support the dreams of disadvantaged children.
