April 6, 2013

Aiming at advancing a group activities for Deaf/deaf children who do not mingle with hearing children easily, Kyoto Welfare Association for the Deaf located in Kyoto-shi, Kyoto Prefecture began the after school day-care service project this spring in the Kyoto social welfare hall. The project will encourage the Deaf/deaf children play, do homework, etc. and spend a time together,

The association has provided the day-care service for the Deaf/deaf children during long vacation such as the summer vacation since 2009.

In response to the opinion from some parents having deaf children that their kid had no friend who could play after school, the association decided to start a weekday program.

Eight children registered participated in the opening ceremony on March 29.
