Shin Taejun

In 2007 Taejun founded Japan’s first microfinance poverty relief fund, Living in Peace, that helps the impoverished people from Vietnam, Cambodia and other Southeast Asian countries gain access to financial resources. The NPO also runs a national donation program, “Chance Maker,” that provides youth living in orphanages and similar institutions with career counseling. Taejun was chosen to appear at the international economic forum Global Shapers, the Asia Young Leaders Forum and the Leaders of Tomorrow symposium. He earned his post-baccalaureate from the Graduate School of Finance, Accounting and Law, Waseda University.
