Thank you everyone again for your generous donations towards our ongoing projects held in Tokyo.

With the help of your donations, we were able to organize various events for children ages 2-18 living in Children's Homes. Many of these childen cannot live with their parents for various reasons such as abuse and or parental neglect.

We try our best to come up with events that are fun fun fun for these children who require much love and care. Especially, the small children look forward to our activities and interacting with the volunteers during our once a month project and they get very disappointed when the project has to be cancelled due to the spread of infectious disease.

 In July, elementary school children made bracelets, necklaces and rings out of beads while the youngsters intently absorbed themselves with Dupro (lego) and Plarail toy trains which we brought to them.

For the month of August, we planned for the first time to hold a Mini Ennichi (Ennichi is a traditional community fair where many different food and game stalls come together) in their facility playground but was unfortunately cancelled due to the heavy rain. The facility offered us to use their bath tub for the three types of scooping games which we planned for the infants that day.  Volunteers and the children also enjoyed palying Bingo together competing for the prizes which bought for this occasion. It was our first attempt to plan a Mini Ennichi where toys for the games and gifts for the Bingo games was provided but despite the bad weather, the children seemed to really enjoy the project which was different from usual.

In September, they made balloons and also enjoyed blowing bubbles in their outside playground.

Please have a look at the wonderful pictures from the projects!

Love Dupro!
