Dear backers,
Thank you for your greate support.

My son is 8 years old with autism.
My dream, to make the place to work with him is also mission I must carry out.

Through challenge to my dream, I could see a difficult state of employment for disabled person in Japan.

In Japan, there is support for continuous employment Type A service, I call.

The number of bankrupt of Type A service are increasing.

*Type A service is for disabled people who age from 18 to 65.

The office must sign a contract of employment with disabled person and pay a salary for their work and also must join the social insurance.

*Japanese ministry of Health announced the fact publicly, in 14th March in 2018. According to their investigation, 71% of Type A service, it’s 2157 office, need to submit the plan for improvement because of their unprofitable operation.

There is a very few company that can employ a person who worked as employment for disabled person at bankrupt company before.

Why number of bankrupt company is increasing?

Japan sees to become an aging society.

It means a decrease in Japanese population and the domestic economic.

And also means big market even in Japan will slowdown.

In addition to these depression, one of the reason is

many office depends on subsidy and can’t cover the payment only by their own business income.

I need a “ financial independent business ” to implement employment for disabled person without needs depending on subsidy.

This thought makes a decision that I start the business to the world.

And I find another problem on woodwork factory,

They have a trouble of aging artisan and decrease of works.

It’s because of Japanese business depression.

I feel I can solve these problem by process of create and produce the products.

Connecting a lack of artisan’s apprentices to lack of disabled employment is one of the solution, I think.

Connect the artisan and employment for disabled person,

This is my final goal as KUDEN owner.

KUDENはものつくりの職人と障がい者雇用をデザインで結ぶ事が最終的な目標です

親愛なるバッカーへ
偉大なるサポートをしてくださって本当にありがとうございます。

私には8歳になる自閉症の息子がいます。
息子と将来一緒に働く場所を作る事が夢であり必ず成し遂げたい使命です。

私はそんな中で日本国内の障がい者雇用の現状置かれている厳しい状況を知ることになります。

日本国内の障がい者の就労継続支援事業である「就労継続支援A型事業所」の倒産が増えています。
※2018年3月14日に厚生労働省が公表した「就労継続支援A型事業所」の調査結果によると、

実態を把握できた3,036事業所の71%にあたる2,157事業所が、経営不振のため経営改善計画書の提出が必要 とされた。

※A型(雇用型)は、18歳から65歳までの障害者が対象で、事業所と障害者が雇用契約を結び、

行った仕事に対して給料が支払われ、社会保険の加入が義務付けられています。

倒産した事業所で働いていた障がい者を受け入れる事が出来る雇用はとても少ない現状です。

なぜ倒産が増えてきたのか?日本は高齢化社会を迎えつつあります。

それは人口減少を意味し、国内需要だけでも大きな市場だった日本の経済が低迷していくことを意味します。

その景気が悪い状況に加えて、給付金や助成金に頼り、事業収益では障害者の賃金を賄えない実質赤字の事業所も多くことが原因としてあげられます。

助成金などに頼らない障がい者雇用を実現するには「経済的な自立」をした事業が必要。そう考え海外に向けて事業を興すことを決めました。

また、KUDENの服や木工を作ってくださる工場では、また別の悩みを抱えていました。

不景気による仕事の減少と職人の高齢化問題です。

KUDENのProductを職人と作り上げる過程で、職人の後継者不足と障がい者雇用を結びつけて後継者不足と障がい者雇用の不足を補えるのでないか?と感じました。

Designでものつくりの職人と障がい者雇用を結ぶこと。

それがKUDENの最終的に果たしたい使命です。
