Tama Technical High School members, who attend our monthly meeting regularly, got the award “FUREAI KANSHAJO 21(Gratitude for close relationship)” from Tokyo Mutual Aid Association for Teaching Staff. Their activities in our monthly meeting was highly valued.
The members belong to JRC, which has had relation with our NGO for years, and they are always a great help in our refurbishing work. They also join other local activities such as electrical workshops in elementary schools, summer festival in Fussa and disaster drill in Fussa.
The following is why the JRC was awarded:
“The JRC of Tama Technical High School was founded in 2003 and has experience of refurbishing wheelchairs in the daycare facilities for elderly people. It has continuously kept refurbishing wheelchairs for children since 2005.”(from the website of Tokyo Mutual Aid Association for Teaching Staff)
Their JRC got honored for the third time, in 2007, 2013, and this year 2019. No other club or group is said to have had this award three times. It’s Mr. Takano, who’s been in charge of JRC from the beginning, that has led the students to this honor.
