Elizabeth Saunders Home is funded by the national government to meet basic requirements for children's living and education.
However, the amount does not suffice to cover more than the basics or to realize an environment commensurate with that of an ordinary home.
Without a means of earning funds on our own, it is essential for us to ask for donations from people of good will.
We sincerely hope that people sympathize with our mission and consider making donations to our cause worthwhile. Please find the following ways to support us.

Yoshisuke Kimura, Chairman of ESH Supporters Club

I am truly grateful for your continued support to ESH.

It is not hard to imagine even from today’s perspective how difficult it must have been for Miki Sawada to take in the biracial children born between the Occupation soldiers and Japanese women after the end of war. She dauntlessly undertook the mission to take care of those ill-fated children against the backdrop of pandemonium the entire country was going through in the aftermath of war.
What motivated Miki Sawada to carry on such a fearless mission despite many adversities and pains, I believe, was her unswerving faith in God. Also, we should not dismiss the fact that an ever-expanding support of goodwill continued to reach her from the advocates to her undertakings. In other words, had it not been for such support, there would have been no Elizabeth Saunders Home existing today.

After decades elapsed, ESH has been rooted firmly in Oiso and continues to play a pivotal role in performing social welfare services as well as providing cultural activities on the three pillars of its operations; namely ESH children's home, "Aobato" and "Miki Sawada Memorial Museum," aiming to meet the changing needs of the society.
In order to restore happy smiles on children’s faces and to let them fulfill their potential, our support, however insignificant each of it may seem, is essential and can convey the valuable message of hope toward the bright future of the children. I would appreciate very much for your continued support and encouragement for the future of the children.
