JICA KOICA Exchange Program

Standard

First Ever KOICA/JICA Exchange Program!

 

Like Japan, Korea too is active in overseas development assistance, including Sri Lanka.  JICA and KOICA volunteers have been working side by side in Sri Lanka for many years, sometimes even in the same office.  The only problem was, we had no opportunities to contact and interact with each other.

 

I decided to change that.  With the help of a KOICA Volunteer (and support from the JICA and KOICA offices), we organized the first ever KOICA/JICA Volunteer Exchange Program.  The program started with “official” type activities like presentations on daily volunteer activities and icebreaking games.  We need “official” type activities so the offices will “support” our event.  Then we ate and sang and danced the rest of the time.  The most important thing was that we got to talk and get to know each other, and have fun!

 

初KOICA・JICA交流会!

 

日本のように韓国もスリランカで国際協力活動を行なっている。お互い隊員の存在を知っていたが中々話したり協力する機会が少なかった。ので、KOICA隊員の知り合いと一緒にKOICA・JICA隊員交流会を開催することにした。

それぞれの活動内容の発表や、ゲーム・音楽・ダンスを通して楽しく話し合って知り合うことが出来て、良かった。企画は少し大変だったけど、今後何かのきっかけになってくれればな。。。

今後も続きますように!
