<Kizuna Concert in Otsuchi 2013>

 On March 17th, 2013, “Kizuna Concert in Otsuchi 2013” was held in Shiroyama Gymnasium in Otsuchi, Iwate. This is the sequel to the concert held in Okayama and Hiroshima in March 2012. When the first concert was held last spring, Otsuchi High School brass band and Shujitsu High School brass band exchanged music sessions, and built new friendship. AMDA High School Club took part in organizing the concert in Okayama. The high school students had promised then that they will visit Otsuchi in the future. After a year-long planning, their dream came true.

For full story, please see the attached report. 

Thank you for your continued support to the next generation of Tohoku, Japan.

High School students from Okayama visits Iwate

Dear Global Giving supporters,

Thank you for your continued support toward AMDA's activities. We appreciate your generosity.

In August 2012, two high school students from Okayama Koyo High School Interact Club members visited Otsuchi, Iwate Prefecture to volunteer, and to exchange ideas with AMDA Otsuchi High School Club members. This project made possible thanks to the generous support from Okayama Seinan Rotary Club.

The escorting teacher of Okayama Koyo High School to this project commented later, “Both students received a huge impact from the disaster area. What they saw, and what they heard must have left a profound impression on them. After the visit to Otsuchi, their attitude changed in a good way.”

For a full report, please see the attached report.

AMDA Invites High School Students from Tohoku

Thank you Global Giving donors for your continued support to the high school students in Tohoku, Japan.

In July 2012, students from Otsuchi, Iwate prefecture visited Okayama where AMDA Headquarter is located, to interact with students in Okayama. Through the same generation exchange program, our hope was it would bring the power of recovery for the affected students. For the students in Okayama where natural disasters are rare, it would give them an opportunity to realize the need of preparedness for the possible future disasters.

Students who participated during the 6-day program said they cried some, laughed a lot, enjoyed new friendship, and lots of email addresses were exchanged among themselves.

For full story, please read the attached file.
