Collabo School is an afterschool program offered for children in the disaster affected areas. Located in Onagawa, Miyagi Prefecture and Otsuchi, Iwate Prefecture, Collabo School has provided academic and phychological support to 1, 684 elementary school, junior and senior high school students (as of September 2015. Accumulative figure)
The town of Onagawa in Miyagi Prefecture and the town of Otsuchi in Iwate Prefecture suffered a serious damage from the tsunami of Great Eastern Japan Earthquake. The rate of houses destroyed in town reached 82.6% and 64.6 %. Many children still live in tiny temporary housing, they do not have their own rooms and no-place to study.
We provide places to study and academic and mental support to students at elementary, junior and senior high school level.
At Collabo school, the number of students positively responding to the questionnaire (I study because it is exciting to be able to do something new) has increased 230% by March 2015. 84% of students at Collabo school commented that they would like to recommend Collabo School to their friends and fellow students. Collabo School serves as a place for children who were hurt and face various family issues to gather and interact among themselves.
Give power for children and students to thrive
