Youth Leadership Program
The Rebuilding 10,000 Lives in Japan Program is coming to a close. The program has developed and evolved over time. The original premise of this project was to provide leadership skills to 200 youth from four cities in Japan's devastated Tohoku area where they learned to lead social projects in local schools, directly working with 2,000 youth and children, and indirectly reaching over 10,000 community members.
The two main long-term goals of this project were to empower youth and boost their economic future through practical skills training and community involvement. This project has far surpassed its original goals. The youth of Tohoku have not only provided support to their own communities but also interacted with the earthquake affected communities of Nepal.
Although IsraAID is finishing its original project, we are excited to share that we will be developing a new project that strengthens the links and mutual support between the youth of Nepal and Japan. The youth are discussing what they can do together to improve the conditions in Nepal, a developing country. IsraAID Japan and Nepal will help facilitate the actualization of this project.
