ACTION (A Child’s Trust is Ours to Nurture) was established in 1994 by Mr. Hajime Yokota to provide support and services to children to increase their chances in fulfilling their aspirations. It is an outcome of Mr. Yokota’s visit to Zambales in 1994, where he witnessed the devastating effects of Mt. Pinatubo eruption, particularly to children.
ACTION helps parents engage in viable livelihood projects and provides educational support to underprivileged children and various assistance to residential facilities for children. In April 2014, ACTION Inc. was officially registered with the Philippines Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a non-stick and non-profit association. ACTION is also a registered agency with the Department of Social Welfare and Development.
