‘Sharing the passion for Japan’
The Marilo Fund is a unique non-profit organisation that promotes commercial, cultural and social relations between Japan and Belgium. Wishing to sustain this connection, the Marilo Fund was founded by Mr and Mrs Blondé-Eelen. By partnering with the King Baudouin Foundation and the Belgium-Japan Association & Chamber of Commerce, the Marilo Fund has been supporting individuals and projects that contribute positively to the mission of the fund by means of a yearly award.
The award is a 5,000€ grant to a journalist working in Belgium with a passion for Japan. Through this award, the Fund wants to contribute to financing an article, a series of articles, a radio or TV report, whose objective is to help improve understanding Japanese society and entrepreneurship in Belgium.
