CWAJ - Promoting Education and Cross-Cultural Understanding
CWAJ Education Programs have contributed to the Japanese society and community for almost 40 years. They are an integral part of CWAJ along with the Scholarship Programs as well as one of our goals. We would like to introduce to you our three programs, one is for children, one is for foreign exchange students, and one is for the visually impaired people.

In addition, CWAJ has continued to contribute to society with its Fukushima Relief Projects and unique art appreciation opportunity for the visually impaired through Print Show Hands-on-Art.
CWAJ Fukushima Relief Projects: Immediately after the catastrophic earthquake, a number of inquiries came from CWAJ members as well as former members now residing abroad asking how they could help the victims and the stricken area through CWAJ. By mid-April 2011 the CWAJ Great East Japan Earthquake Relief Fund was established and CWAJ Great East Japan Earthquake Mental Health Care Project was launched. The relief initiatives developed to CWAJ Fukushima Relief Projects and established Fukushima Relief Scholarship for nursing students studying at Fukushima Medical University School of Nursing. The first scholarships were awarded in March 2012. CWAJ Print Show also coordinated activities to raise funds to support Fukushima through art, which was realized as “Asobijutsu”, an art program for children, in July 2014.
CWAJ’s education committees participated in summer event in Fukushima, contributing with its long experience in children’s English education.
