Our Story

Moved by Sawmi’s passion to help her people in Myanmar, first Jacob, and later Tina joined together to create the non-profit group Heartship Myanmar Japan. 

Since 2016, the group has been collecting used soccer gear in Japan and delivering them with a long term mission to provide educational opportunities, build leadership through sport and education for the children of Myanmar. 

What makes us unique is our different back grounds of Myanmar, US, and Japan. For more about us, please go to our personal stories.
