If you’re feeling charitable, loving, and full of energy, there’s a great volunteering opportunity coming up. AJET has organized a trip to the Inamien Orphanage in Kaga on Saturday, March 13, 2010 from 1:30-3:00.
They’ll be playing games and doing activities with 20 elementary school aged children, and if you’ve never played with orphanage kids before, I can personally attest that it’s a lot of fun and will give you a lot of feel-good vibes, even if you don’t speak their language.
Ideally AJET is looking to go back once every 2 months, so they’d love to have a core group of solid volunteers get established; however, I’m sure the kids would be happier for you to visit them once than never at all.
Also, this event announcement was sent out to JETs, but if you’re a non-JET foreigner living in Ishikawa who’s interested in participating, you may want to contact Anna anyway! I’m betting she’d be happy you’re interested.
