There was an event held at a "volunteer school for schoolchildren" in the Area Welfare Support Center located at Annaka-shi, Gunma Prefecture near Tokyo.
Total of 12 elementary children (4th~6th graders) learned about a senior citizen and disability welfare, visited facilities and learned importance of the welfare volunteer.
The event aims to deepen the understanding to welfare and volunteer activities through experience, which is hold by the City Social Welfare Council and others for two days during the summer holidays every year.
The group of children who learned sign language showed their interest, saying, "I'd like to learn more." (photo)
