About FCSC Challenged Children Program

FCSC was established in 1958, almost 60 years ago, by the New Zealand Ambassador and YMCA North America to support YMCA Japan to contribute to the Japanese society. Today, FCSC's fund-raising effort is supported by the ambassadors to Japan from various countries and the members of the FCSC Board who are mainly international business professionals with the focus to support Challenged Children Program (CCP) that are executed in over 200 locations across Japan.

In order to support children with disabilities, it requires more source and financial support. YMCA's volunteers are dedicated to run the program so FCSC is so committed to continue bringing joy and empowerment to these children.

Our current fund-raising programs include International Charity Run which is conducted in 21 cities across Japan.
