How To Give

Yasashisa for a Better World

Yasashisa is a Japanese word commonly translated as ‘kindness’ or ‘caring,’ but it is more than that. The concept of yasashisa includes humility, compassion, empathy, the desire to help. It suggests humanity, and love. We are retaining the Japanese word in our motto because we believe in the yasashisa of people everywhere. We believe that, when people are brought together, their yasashisa can make all the difference.

You can show your yasashisa and support Ashinaga USA’s Ashinaga Africa Initiative by becoming an Ashinaga-san. That name, meaning “Mr./Ms. Long-Legs,” is given to supporters who contribute to Ashinaga’s mission, showing the same spirit as the anonymous benefactor in Daddy-Long-Legs, the American novel that inspired Ashinaga’s name.  No matter the size of your gift, your donation to Ashinaga Inc. makes you an Ashinaga-san, as you help us to realize the Ashinaga Africa Initiative and show your true yasashisa. Thank you!

Share your Yasashisa and become an Ashinaga-san today by making a donation!
