Individual Consultation Session with NPOs in Disaster-stricken Area for NPO certification (NPO Tomato House)
Tomato House is an organization which provides job assistance and other services for people with disabilities in Kooriyama City, Fukushima Prefecture. Inspired by the certification of another organization which provides similar services in Fukushima Prefecture, Tomato House is also considering about gaining the authorized NPO status to widen their activities. In the session, preliminary calculations were made based on the accounting documents to see whether the Public Support Test (PST) could be passed, as well as reviewing other criteria. The representatives were happy to find out that the PST, which had been seen as impossible to pass, started to look feasible with the relative-value standard.
