Reading the book "You Are Really Wonderful"
Please find a Japanese version of this report here.
Thank you always for supporting children in Fukushima and Academy Camp. In this report, we will look back our achievements in the year 2015, and look ahead our activities for the coming year.
In March, we had a camp in Aizu, where children experienced traditional regional crafts. We had two summer camps in August near Lake Inawashiro: the term 1 was for elementary school students, which was named "Wings for the Future", and the term 2 was for junior high and high school students to open up their "Doors to the World". Throughout the year, we practiced paddling dragon boats in Lake Inawashiro with some workshops in food education, and participated in races.
With all these achievements, Fukushima Dragon Boat Academy (FDBA) is now a separate entity from Academy Camp since November 1, as a regional children's sport club in Fukushima with opportunities for scientific thinking and practicing of physical exercises. We are not halving, but doubling with two organizations the impact of our activities towards healthy growth of children in Fukushima.
Next year, in collaboration with FDBA and other organizations and activities, we will continue to provide the children with opportunities to extend their knowledge and experiences. Please take part in our activities. We are all in this together.
RECURRING DONATIONS MATCH CAMPAIGN IS ONGOING
December is a good season for charity. This year, GlobalGiving is matching 100% for the first iterations of new recurring donations up to $200 per donor per project, if the recurring donations continue for at least four months. This is a great opportunity for all of us, extending the impact of the support for our project. Please consider supporting children in Fukushima and Academy Camp for monthly basis. If not, all the same. We would really appreciate every donation, whether recurring or not.
