Interested in Study Work Camp in Hokkaido?

We offer a wonderful program called Study Work Camp in Hokkaido 2018!
In this program, you can visit Urakawa-cho and Obihiro. In Urakawa-cho, you will visit Bethel House, a basis of activities conducted by those who have psychiatric disorder, and learn how it works and what they do through doing actual work and fellowship with them.
In Obihiro, you will visit the place where Tokachi Etekekampa has study sessions for Aino children, in order to learn the Aino tribe and their culture.
Why not join us and broaden the perspective together?

The details of the program and how to apply for it are below.
