International Exchange Experience For Japanese Students Who Can’t Go To School

November 10, 2022

Our student Anna has been working on a cool project! She offered Japanese students who are unable to attend conventional schools due to mental health struggles an international exchange experience with other high school students from around the world.

With the help of peer volunteers, she taught the students about other countries and cultures, creating and translating materials into Japanese. Anna’s efforts have had a big impact: “Throughout the project, I could observe some development in children, and gain confidence, and interest in the world!”

Funding for this project was available thanks to the generosity of a donor, who supports projects that promote the UWC ideology and values in different places around the world. You can see more in the video Anna made!
