Project SHIeN

SHiN believes that more opportunities should be given to Filipinos to experience proper training before starting the challenging life of an OFW. However, we need your support to make this happen.


Project SHIeN (Shien 支援 means “support”) is a crowdfunding program that aims to help highly deserving trainees to be given a full scholarship to SHiN’s Intensive Holistic Program. This aims to provide scholarship to two trainees that we will be assessing based on their financial ability and desire to be in the training program.


The scholarship includes the following:

Accommodation Fee for the entire duration of the training


Meals for the entire duration of the training

Japanese Language lesson materials

SHiN desires to continue Project SHIeN for every batch of trainees we will take in. To know more about this endeavor, email us at
