Ίδρυμα Nippon Foundation

Το Ίδρυμα Nippon της Ιαπωνίας ιδρύθηκε το 1962 ως μη κερδοσκοπικό φιλανθρωπικό ίδρυμα, ενεργό στην Ιαπωνία και σε όλο τον κόσμο. Αρχικά οι προσπάθειές του εστιάστηκαν κατά ένα μεγάλο μέρος στον ναυτιλιακό τομέα, αλλά από τότε το φάσμα των δραστηριοτήτων του έχει επεκταθεί στην εκπαίδευση, την κοινωνική πρόνοια, τη δημόσια υγεία, κ.ά., ενώ η δράση του εκτείνεται  σε περισσότερες από 100 χώρες μέχρι σήμερα. Μαζί με περισσότερες από 20 οργανώσεις συνεργατών τους στην Ιαπωνία και παγκοσμίως, χρηματοδοτούν και βοηθούν τις κοινωνικές προσπάθειες που στοχεύουν στην πραγματοποίηση μιας ειρηνικότερης και ακμάζουσας κοινωνίας.
