Dear Marie Claudine,
I participated in your side event at CSW56.
I was moved by your speech!
Shirley and I are both member of IFUW (international federation of university women).
During the session, you mentioned you need shoes for kids in Rwanda.
If so, I will collect shoes and send them from Japan.

Questions:

Where I should send to?

Is there time limit to send?
how many shoes you might ask?

Hope to hear from you

IZUMI

Please meet our HERO

Izumi Yamashita

I was born and gown in Fuji city which is located in Mt. Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan. I have sent most of my time with children as a swim and English instructor. My time with children made me concern about child happiness with their families. So, I decided to study and was educated in the United States in my 30s.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education and child development & family life at Indiana State University, and a master’s degree in community services, Family and Child Ecology at Michigan State University. I worked as a family life educator after  having come back to Japan and then, I worked as a Fuji city councilor from 2007 to 2011. I try to get a seat again in political arena.

I am now doing social activities as a member of Japanese Association of University Women, Japan home economics association, and a local community.

Building wonderful child and family support systems in Japan is to my job and hope!

I live in Fuji city with my parents and a cat.

Peace!!

International Day of the African Child Day
on
Tuesday, June 16, 2015,
from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.

International Day of the African Child takes place on June 16, 2015. The Day of the African Child has been celebrated every year since 1991, when it was first initiated by the Organisation of African Unity. It honors those who participated in the Soweto Uprising in 1976 on that day. It also raises awareness of the continuing need for improvement of the education provided to African children.

In Soweto, South Africa, on June 16, 1976, about ten thousand black school children marched in a column more than half a mile long, protesting the poor quality of their education and demanding their right to be taught in their own language. Hundreds of young students were shot, the most famous of which being Hector Peterson. More than a hundred people were killed in the protests of the following two weeks, and more than a thousand were injured. (Source: Wikipedia)

There will be an African Dance Performance performed by Third Grade students, choreographed and directed by Sister ‘Dele Husbands, a dance teacher and cultural griot, has been instructing P.S. 3’s students in dance and African culture since 1990. She is internationally known in the field of dance performance and education, and is the co-founder and executive managing director of Forces of Nature Dance Theater Company, based in New York City.

This annual Dance Festival culminates the Third grade’s study of countries of Africa. The focus of their Social Studies curriculum is “Communities Around the World.” It also celebrates the diverse population, which includes children of recent African immigrants.
