Sponsor the Grassroots Summit

               

Although the Japanese guests pay their travel expenses and personal tour fees, we are raising funds to provide proper welcome and farewell ceremonies. These ceremonies are important staples of the program and offer a wide international platform for exposure from program participants to high-level government representatives and diplomats.

Sponsors will receive admission to our opening and closing ceremonies and be recognized at both ceremonies, on our website, and on promotional materials leading up to the Summit.
