Interested in volunteering, communicating in English and have a great time together with cute little kids by camping with them?
Details about this volunteer project is as below:
Hello! This is Recovery Assistance Center of Miyagi, which keeps committing on the relief works with Miyagi prefecture and Sendai city. One of our projects, “International English Camp” is designed to increase the mental welfare of the children.
A lot of children got a scar in their hearts through the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011. Some children lost their family members or their friends, some lost their house to live, and some just could not forget what they experienced on the horrific day…The project has started in inviting the children who still lived in the temporary housings to Zao, a tourist spot in Miyagi in summer 2012. In spring 2013, we have held the camps in Chichibu, Saitama for the children evacuated from the three prefectures affected by the disaster.
This camp is designed for the cheerful, positive, and communicative foreign students, foreigners and the children to spend time together so that the children will get back their smiles and cheerfulness, increasing their cooperativeness, activeness, independence, and the sense of internationalism.
We have been committed to invite all the children who have been affected by the disaster at least once, and it would be highly appreciated if you could help our project.
