GAJET is proud to present the 11th Annual I・CAN・JAPAN Charity Fundraiser! All welcome!! 英文の下に日本語版があります。

*** What is I Can Japan? ***

 I Can Japan (or simply I Can) began as an endeavour to support the communities affected by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. Every year since then, GAJET has held the event as a symbol of love (愛, 'ai') and feelings (感, 'kan') for Japan. This is our way of giving back to the community that has been so welcoming and supportive of the international community, not only in Japan, but more importantly, in our Kingdom of Cabbages and Konjac™ , Gunma.

All are welcome to this event, so please invite your friends, family, coworkers and other community members!

*** Our Cause ***

 This year, all funds raised during the event will be donated to the Gunma Satoyama School for children with learning disabilities. The school’s main belief is that there is no correct answer to education and that children can learn in various ways. Instead of classrooms, this school is unique in that it teaches their students outside and engages in various outdoor activities. These include learning about farming methods, working with local communities to grow food, and how to co-exist with nature.

 The school relies solely on raised funds and donations. As educators, it’s important for every child to have access to an education. Donating will help allow students to continue having access to their education, as well as provide them with necessary supplies. Funding also greatly aids the school for the winter months when being outside can become difficult for the students.
