Nursery Opening

Yui-no-ie (House of YUI), our new nursery has been opened in Nakazato area of Ishinomaki in February, 2013. 

The nursery is built to support not only babies/kids in tsunami devastated areas most of who still live in temporary house complexes but also their parents, especially mothers who want to find new jobs but face difficulties to secure their time to find jobs and work as they need to take care of their children. Yui-no-ie is also intended to be a hub of 'mom community' where mothers can casually get together.

Several local children's nurses have been hired to work, and since its first day, many kids have been enjoying spending their time at the nursery! We are going to open the second nursery in another area in Ishinomaki.

This will be Project YUI's forth core activities to support children in tsunami-devastated areas in addition to 1) Minna-no-ba (supporting play and learning for kids in after-school time by sending volunteers), 2) Special learning events (providing special learning opportunities for kids in alliance with corporations/NPOs), and 3) School support (supporting local school teachers by providing volunteer work forces).
