One day in Japan

Standard

After over two years of working in Sri Lanka, I’m convinced more than ever that cultural exchange activities are integral responsibility of a JICA volunteer.  My last event with Serendipity Trust, was “One Day in Japan.”  We spent the day with tech school students in the Japanese program, introducing them to the breadth of Japanese culture: Kimonos, Origami, Calligraphy, J-pop/Anime and even sushi.  Their motivation was overwhelming.  In a couple years, they’ll be in Japan, dressing Japanese kids up in sarees and feeding them curry!

赴任2年経過、いまだに思う事:文化紹介・交流は協力隊員としてとても重要な任務。Serendipity Trustと最後のエベントは「日本での一日」

専門学校で日本語を専攻している生徒たちと一日かけて浴衣・折り紙・書道・J-pop・寿司を体験した。とても熱心で感動した。いつか日本に行って日本の生徒たちにスリランカについて紹介して欲しい。がんばれ!
