DAGUPAN CITY- A renowned charitable foundation and its donors in Japan visited Escuela de Nuestra Senora de la Salette here to check the special children-pupils who are beneficiaries of their donations.

According to Ryuji Hasegawa, fund-raiser of Nippon Foundation, he invited several donors to see how the school is doing.

For 2009 and 2010, the Nippon Fundation donated materials like black and spell drums, flute, xylophone, maraca, and other percussion instruments.

Akira Futagoishi, chief of the Nippon Skilled Volunteers Association who is based here, said Nippon-Japan visited La Salette to see the situation of the special children and will contribute more if he is convinced that the school uses the doantions for the benefit of the pupils.

According to Rex Lor, top executive of the college, Nippon Foundation is a non-profit philanthropic organization that is active both in Japan and abroad. It has been doing philanthropic works for the last six years in countries like Indonesia, Sudan, and the Philippines

Its aim is the realization of a peaceful and prosperous global society to secure basic human rights.

Lor said that Nippon Foundation intercedes for the proceeds of the 10% profit of the vending machines like those of Coke and others in Japan as funds for its charitable works globally.

He added that in the past, another foundation from Japan sent representatives to teach musical therapy to teachers of La Salette.

The teachers share music therapy to the student of La Sallete.

“In the long run, the student would not only be good in academics but also in music,” Lor said
