What 3/11 means for the future of volunteering

Date and Time: 
Saturday, 30 March 2013 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm

Much like in the aftermath of the Hanshin Earthquake, official response to the 3/11 disasters was inadequate and slow in coming. And much like in 1995, local businesses, community groups and NPOs are filling the breach. One of these is Minna no Te, a community action group of Tohoku evacuees living in Kyoto.

Takatsuki Shiritsu Sogo Shimin Koryu Center, 3rd floor Room 1 視聴覚センター
Fee for JALT members:
