We have started to accept the applications for the next FUKUSHIMA KIDS SUPPORT PROJECT.
This refresh camp will be held on 20 July - 1 Aug 2019. (Arriving in Cairns on 21 July, Departing Cairns on 31 July.)
We have been holding this Cairns Refresh Camp in March every year, which is the same month of when the Japan Day of Hope event takes place.
However, it is a little bit of a tight schedule having those 2 big events in the same month.
Also, the weather in July is more stable than in March.
The camp dates in March was too close to the end of term in Cairns and had a bit of a struggle organising the school visits.
With those reasons, we have changed the dates from March to July.
Using the summer holiday in Japan, we are able to make it a few days longer.
The JAPAN DAY OF HOPE will be held in March as usual.
Here are some photos from the project last time in March.
We've got a lot of messages from students who participated the project before.
A student who joined 2 years ago, selected a member of the Hiroshima Nagasaki Peace Messengers, is going to Switzerland for a speech this August.
A student who joined last year is studying hard for her challenge to go to a University in Germany.
Those students & parents messages encourage us to continue this project!
Thank you very much again for all the volunteer host families and people who are supporting us.
We would like to continue and expand this project more and more with the people network in Cairns.
