Children’s Smile Support Foundation
Smiling children,
peaceful world
The General Association for Supporting Smiling Children was established in Okinawa, Japan in 2022 and in Poland in 2023.
It was triggered by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the support of the people who faced it. Many people in Japan did what they could to help the many Ukrainians who fled to Poland.
However, the difficulty of support is to continue , and what can be done by individuals will stop somewhere unless someone takes over their thoughts.
That is why the organisation is working to realise a world where everyone in the world can live in peace, with smiles , peace and educational opportunities as a matter of course.
What We Do
Our foundation aims to enhance the educational setting for children, promote equal access to education for all kids, and foster an improvement in living conditions.

Our Daily care is placed in Katowice, ul. Moniuszki 4/3.

Yugo Azuma
After graduating from high school in Okinawa, I continued my studies in higher education and obtained a university teaching license. During my studies, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Ireland, where I worked as a teacher in a Japanese elementary school and as an instructor at a swimming school. Living abroad awakened my interest in economics, which led me to want to enter a PhD program in Poland to continue my studies in this field. However, my plans changed when the war broke out in Ukraine. Driven by a desire to help those in need, I decided to help Ukrainian refugees. I soon learned that many of the mothers and children among the refugees needed day care services that were not available. To solve this urgent problem, I decided to create a day care center specifically for Ukrainian refugees.
I am Maria, a mother of two wonderful children who was forced to leave her home in Ukraine because of the war. When I came to another country, I decided that my personal difficulties and my experience would help me to help other refugees who found themselves in a similar situation. Children should be happy and safe! Through my work, I want to give hope and a sense of community to people displaced by the conflict and inspire others to join us in making a difference.
Toshinori Azuma
After graduating from university, I started my career in the construction industry, to which I have devoted my professional life to this day. As I was approaching retirement, I was looking forward to pursuing leisure activities such as traveling and gardening. However, my son Hugo's passion for creating positive change in the world inspired him to set up a foundation to support and establish a kindergarten in Poland. Despite my plans for a quiet retirement, I was touched by my son's altruism and joined his mission to make a difference in the lives of others
I studied physical education, law, finance and accounting at various universities in Silesia. Professionally, I am a legal advisor, managing a law firm called LEX AID and president of the board of the Why Not Foundation. I specialize in legal services for companies, financial, insurance and real estate law. In my personal life, I try to be a good person and pass on all the good things I have received in my life.
Postscript: We are saddened to inform you that Marta Kiezek, our sincere and inspiring activist who enthusiastically worked with us to open a day center for Ukrainian refugees, passed away due to illness halfway through the realization of her ambitions.
