KGCF Mission / フェスティバルの目的


KGCF Mission

To provide an opportunity for the communities of Kobe to come together, with the purpose of cultivating a larger sense of global community and cross-cultural understanding, raising awareness of issues affecting the lives of children and women in Japan and around the world and raising funds for specific worthwhile projects/groups addressing those issues. On the occasion of the 40th anniversary in 2019, KGCF also aims at raising awareness concerning environmental issues, specifically concerning single-use plastic.

The annual Kobe Global Charity Festival (KGCF) has been raising funds for educational projects for children in Asia and Africa for 39 years, through a one-day festival held in the autumn in the city of Kobe, Japan. Over the years, thousands of children and women in dire poverty and desperate circumstances around the world, have benefited from the millions of yen collected at this event.
