Last week, participants of Playing 4 Keeps Citywide had the pleasure of welcoming a group of Japanese students from Ochanomizu Women’s University. Several P4K participants took on the role of student ambassadors, facilitating ice-breaker activities, giving presentations about various Global Kids programs, and fielding questions from GK participants and Japanese students regarding program activities.
Then, students from Japan showed a video that they had made about their university, taking viewers on a virtual tour through its campus. Presentations were followed by a buffet-style dinner in which participants and the Japanese got to converse and get to know each other a little more over delicious Cuban cuisine.
After saying their farewells to their Japanese visitors, participants expressed great interest in hosting international visitors in the future.
