Hongo no Mori Social Welfare Organization

Founded in 1988, the Hongo no Mori Social Welfare Organization is the first workplace for mentally challenged community members in the Bunkyo Ward, Tokyo region where clients are able to earn fair wages and gain self-confidence through their abilities. When not hard at work, clients enjoy a mulitude of activities including recreational sports complete with tournaments. Staff members that work around the clock to provide job facilitation, assistance, and on-site care are trained professionals from the University of Tokyo Hospital specializing in psychiatric care.

Through referrals from the Tokyo Council of Social Welfare, Rimini Street donated laptops complete with a support technician to be used to further expand their job placement program as well as offer technology training to their many motivated clients.
