The river used to flood often and make rich soil a long time ago but now it flows calmly. Kamojima children center (Kamojima Jido-kan) is located in Yoshinogawa city named after Yoshino river. The children center is where local children from 0 to 18 years old enjoy learning together and they can spend time for free. We would like to give children a various experiences regardless of their financial situations. We have children with a wide range of ages, we support them to help each other regardless of ages or experiences in order to grow up. We hope more people to get to know about us, Kamojima Jido-kan! *Outcome of this workcamp; The communication with local kids directly was very limited because of COVID-19 last summer. However, volunteers and local organization made some ideas to play with them through the online and thought how they manage the workcamp. It will be a kind of new style of workcamp.
Work 1. Support the operation of the child center and create event, including online contents by using ZOOM. (this is the most busiest season there.)
2. Provide some opportunities for children that they can touch international culture.
*Because of COVID-19, there is a highly possibility volunteer wouldn't visit children center and will create online event by using ZOOM to communicate with local children at the accommodation.
