We welcomed 8 students from Fukushima this year with your support.
We learned about the new energy sources and something about the relation between nuclear power plants and uranium mined in Australia. Studying about those issues with Fukushima Kids made us consider about what each of us could do for our future.
At the first year in 2015, we had 4 students from Fukushima to Cairns. In 2016, 6 students, this year 8 students and next year which is 2018, we will have 8 students again.
We started with a small group motivated by wishes and passions only and slowly expanded and moved on getting more and more support from local residents, companies and organisations. I realise that this is great and impressive progress. Thank you again for all of your support.
The Cairns local students are willing to help donation or volunteer works for the Smile with Kids, this is also a great motivation for us because I could feel that we share the same passion with the students as well.
While we are getting opinions and comments, we would like to be always genuine and honest to what we can do step by step.
They are the Fukushima Kids we welcomed in 2017
We have started to prepare the event, Japan Day of Hope 2018 (10th March).
We look forward to having a great year with you in 2018.
Warmest wishes for a year filled with happiness and smiles.
With a heartful gratitude.
