The Program of Education for International Understanding

With the cooperation of international students of universities, (mainly Waseda University and others) we have a program of education for international understanding for children at elementary schools in Honjo area.
This program can help a lot in promoting a spirit of international mindedness and holding a global perspective while having a cultural exchange.
Furthermore, this makes a precious opportunity for children not only to gain knowledge about foreign countries but rethink our Japanese culture as well.

Apply to International Understanding Volunteer.

We recruit International students studying at Japanese Universities as volunteers.

  • Do you like children? Are you interested in volunteering activities or education for international understanding? If your answer is yes, come and join this program to visit a Japanese elementary school and introduce your own country in either Japanese or English to everyone! You will also get to interact with children and see what Japanese school life is like.

For this program, international students will be asked to prepare some material (PowerPoint files;including maps, national flags, photos, etc.) introducing their own countries briefly, and then show their country’s game or songs and play with them.

If you want to be a volunteer or need any further information, please feel free to contact us below.
