Description: This project is actively working for SDG 10 (Reduced Inequalities), organized together with Happy Kids Team (HKT) in NICE and Kamakura Children Home (KCH) since 2004. HKT was started in 2004 since child abuse was getting more serious (5,000 cases were reported in 1997 and 159,850 cases were done in 2018). KCH accommodates 80 children aged 2-18, who lives in the smaller units of 10 children. They cannot live with their families by various reasons, but many cases are by abuse. But children there are very powerful and friendly to the volunteers and they are well integrated into the local community.Outcome of this workcamp: The workcamps have been creating great impact to empower their hopes and confidence, to grow friendship and personality and to support the staff members. In 2019, 5 vols. from 3 countries had a great time with the children and staff and made an important role to prepare and run their summer festival Please see the long term goal of this project as Local SDGs at https://www.slideshare.net/nice-workcamp/ss-82084539 (only Japanese for the moment, but you can at least enjoy the pictures).
