We are in need of host families!
Established in 1994 by the Asian-Pacific Children's Convention's (APCC) in Fukuoka, the "Mission Project" (MP) is a program that sends Japanese children to different countries to enhance their understanding of their Asian-Pacific neighbors by learning about their lifestyles, culture and customs through first hand experiences. Hawaii is one of the designated locations this year, and JASH is honored to be a part of this amazing opportunity. 15 children from Fukuoka will be sent to Hawaii from March 25 - 30, 2015 to stay with local host families and experience life and school here in Hawaii. In the past, long lasting friendships have been formed between the host families and the students.
If you are interested in serving as a host family for one of these Japanese students, please contact Elizabeth Stanton-Barrera at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the JASH office at 524-4450.
