Speakers: Noguchi Akina (LITALICO), Takase Kenji (Chaibora), Oyama Haruka (Chaibora)
Venue: Mercury Tower, 5F, 3508 (East campus)

We all want to feel welcomed by society, especially when we are children.

We invite two guest speakers working in the field of child support and education to share their experiences with us. LITALICO provides services that help nurture the talent and personality of individuals with different disabilities and nationalities, and Chaibora is an NPO that supports recruiting to orphanages.

This talk is also recommended for those interested in career perspectives and who are considering working for an organization that focuses on social issues. Education and home are the foundation of children's lives. This talk will help us think about how we can nurture future generations.

The event will be followed by a free dinner reception which all are welcome to join.
