Greeting from Executive Director

Salt Japan Hiroyuki Inoue

Hello, everyone. My name is Inoue, and I am the Executive Director of the Salt Payatas Japan Corporation.

My first visit to the Payatas was when I participated in a study tour of the Salt Payatas during my sophomore year in college.

I still vividly remember the first time I saw a mountain of trash and the people picking up trash on it. At that time, I made up my mind that I wanted to do something to eliminate the number of people suffering from poverty in the world. But of course I never imagined that I would be the executive director of the organization that accepted me at that time.

I myself was a single parent at home, and my mother raised me as a single woman. My mother always said, “I will support you in whatever you want to do. Next, I want to support the poverty-stricken people in the Philippines in their dreams and what they want to do.
