With the help of our generous donors, SYL Foundation made a grant in the amount of $56,115 USD to Peace Winds America to support Japan’s relief and recovery efforts after the devastating earthquake and tsunami.

Along with the students at Koyo High School and Peace Winds America, we are deeply grateful.
