During the pandemic, issues such as poverty within single parent families,
and unemployment became more evident in Japan.
According to a research done in July by the Ministry of Health,
Labour and Welfare,86.7％ of single parent families are suffering from financial hardship.
At the same time, accounting to the the #You’re Not Alone project Committee over 70 percent of the people either faced salary reduction or unemployment.
We stand by our mission of creating a world where women can express who they are,
and decided to work with 2 organisations supporting women in Japan.
One is, “Mam’s Style”, a NPO that supports single mothers raising children,
and another is “PICHU PICHU TOKYO”, a fashion brand that hires women living in depopulated areas.
