Children can learn how to save their life to survive from disaster, and the society provides this opportunity.

災害時に“生きのびる”ために、 こどもたちが “いのちを守るための教育“を受けられる社会へ

The objective of the camp: “Stay alive”
What will be the achievement of this camp:
The percentage to survive increases than before coming to the camp. *There are many things we need to learn about life. A single day camp cannot make sure your survival. But still, we want to increase the probability to stay alive.


《どうなったら、このキャンプは成功?》 「生きのびる」確率が、キャンプに来る前よりもあがる!

※ いのちについて学ぶことはたくさん。 1日のキャンプで、必ず生きのびれるとは言えません。 それでも、生きのびる確率を少しでもあげたいと考えています。

After 311 disaster, we started volunteer activities and the parts of us are sufferer. Some of our family died by the disaster. Seven years passed. It is so hard but possible for people to rebuild houses and buildings. It is so hard but possible for people to reconstructing jobs. But it is impossible for people to regain the lives. There is no longer any possible way of facing our children’s smile. We don’t want anybody to be kept sad and heartbroken with losing the precious. It is also difficult for adult to judge and action with disaster. Children don’t learn with boring lessons.
