Kidzuna Community Connection
Nov. 28 (Saturday) Kidzuna Christmas Fun at the PTA Holiday Bazaar 1:00-5:00 (Kidzuna Activities are from 2:00-4:00)
The Kidzuna Community Connection project aims to provide opportunities for NIS to contribute to its immediate and wider community.
At each event, local Japanese children have had a chance to come and enjoy a range of activities with NIS volunteer student helpers, and of course practice their English as they do so.
Kidzuna weekend art-craft events for local elementary school and kindergarten students have taken place on a regular basis from 2013-2015, and will continue through the 2015-16 academic year. Each event has a different theme, for example, Creative Olympics, World Book Day and Earth Day.
Kidzuna events so far have been free of charge, but we encourage participants to make a donation to NIS support activities in Tohoku. Thanks to donations so far, we were able to donate over 50,000 yen towards last year's Sports Day for our friends at Togura Elementary School in Minamisanriku, and we will shortly be making another donation towards their community Christmas party on December 12. The original school was swept away during the 2011 tsunami, and the 72 children and their teachers are looking forward to moving back to their rebuilt school in the coming months.
