The COVID-19 pandemic has been the defining global crisis of our time and the greatest challenge we have faced. In 2021 JSIE continued its online programs “Global Career Series” and “Peer Roundtable discussion” for junior/high school students. Also, the summer program, which used to be held in person, was held online as “WISE Youth Global”, mainly for high school students. In 2022, we would like to take on new challenges while coexisting with the Covid. We plan new exciting programs. JSIE wishes all of you good health and happiness for the coming year!
Because of COVID-19, we postponed in-person WISE workshop to next year. WISE Program is designed to promote leadership creative thinking toward innovative solutions against various social problems and challenges. With your support, we are able to conduct high quality WISE workshop, bringing highly talented participants, great speakers and mentors.
We continue to support a project came out from WISE Kumamoto 2019 by WISE Associate Caitlin Puzzar. She is tackling abuse and bullying issues in Japanese schools. She is already conducting a pilot program at elementary & middle schools in Kumamoto. Caitlin's interview published by Beacon Report below (Ending Child Abuse in Japan by Beacon Report). To protect the physical and mental health and safety of children, we'd also greatly appreciate your financial support to "Stop Child Abuse and Bullying" project led by Caitlin. Your support will also help us to find future potential social entrepreneurs.
We will update on our activities and very grateful of your support. Please stay healthy and happy.
