Dear Supporters:

We are so grateful for your continued support. We have just finished holding online events to promote Youth and Women's Initiative for Sustainable Empowerment (WISE). This year we focused younger generations, 9-12 graders in the US and Japan to explore collaborative social innovation challenges. 

WISE Youth Global is specially organized by JSIE to provide opportunity to young individuals for shaping ideas into actionable project plans. Participated 9-12 graders had virtual opportunity to work together with students from various locations to tackle social problems, including period poverty, food waste, child labor, depopulation, and gender unequality issues. Within the three-day workshop, students learned leadership styles through group works with people with diverse background. Thanks to online technology, we have invited great presenters from South Africa, Kumamoto and Boston to talk about their projects, and mentors to provide advice to students. It was our privilege to welcome Ms. Yuki Kondo-Shah from US Consulate in Fukuoka to share her experience. 
We will update on our activities and very grateful of your support. Please stay healthy and happy.
All the best,
Hiromi Murakami
