| ||In Japan arbeiten wir seit langem mit der 1991 gegründeten Organisation NICE (= Never-ending International Volunteer Exchange) zusammen. Die Camps zeichnen sich durch sorgfältige Vorbereitung und hervorragende Betreuung aus. Seit 1996 kooperieren wir auch mit der Organisation CIEE-Japan, die neben umfangreichen Aktivitäten im Austausch von Studenten auch Workcamps organisiert.|
Beide Organisationen kennen die Projektorte und die "Local Hosts" gut und besuchen sie regelmäßig. Vor allem in ländlichen Gegenden empfiehlt es sich, ein paar japanische Wörter im Gepäck zu haben!
Japan NICE-17-128 Iwatesan 2 05.12.-11.12.2017 KIDS/SOCI/EDU 20vols
PROJECT: This work camp is organized together with Local group since 2012. A giant earthquake occurred in the eastern part of Japan on March 11th 2011, causing unprecedented damage. 80% of the houses in Iwate have gotten damaged by the earthquake and tsunami, and many people still have to live in the temporary house now. The children cannot play in the school playground because there are so many temporary houses in there. So we would like to give the opportunity for the children to enjoy the outdoor activities. We are going to organize a Christmas camp for 120 kids aged 9-12 years old.
WORK: NICE will organize the Kids camp and run this program with volunteers from around the world. As your task, playing and living together with the children and supporting them when necessary all day! Volunteers will also provide the international games for them too. You have chance to show your culture, music, dance and games for the children. Please bring a lot of ideas about songs, games and dance like you can play with the children. And enjoy Christams with the children!
ACCOMMODATION: Youth Training Accomodation. Simple self-catering. Food is all provided. Shared room, please bring a sleeping bag. At 10:30 pm, the light will be turned off for sleep!
