Kato-san, The President of the Sendai YMCA International Hotel and Pastry School, tells us that that there are four new scholarship students. They are all freshmen and are going to do an internship program for two months from the middle of July.

The students, Kosuke, Kaede, Mio and Mana have video messages for us in English . They tell us about their new lives at school, studying hard to meet their qualifications, their upcoming internships and how they are learning English for their hospitality careers in restaurants and hotels.

Many of the students need scholarships to attend the Sendai YMCA International Hotel and Pastry School because of economic hardships, some caused by the 2011 Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, and lately because of the pandemic they lost the chance to work after school.  The Sendai YMCA and TAMF provide these scholarships jointly. 

Thank you for the support you have given these students.  It is your help which makes it possible for them to pursue their chosen careers.

Footprints and Footsteps

As we mark the 10th anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami it is a time to reflect and thanks to GlobalGiving, a time to continue our mission with the help of matching donations.

Footprints and Footsteps 3.11 and the Future of Tohoku - March 5-11

This is an online event to look back at the events of March 11, 2011, and efforts to recover and rebuild in the 10 years since. Featuring a number of documentaries focusing on those affected by the disasters arising out of the events of that day, both Japanese and non-Japanese, especially JET Program participants and alumni, we will look back from this ten-year mark to remember what happened, and look at today and tomorrow to get a sense of what has been accomplished and what the future holds.

We are also collecting messages and memories on our Facebook page. We will keep you updated with the latest information about the film screening event.
