Coffee Hour: Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers

Author:Author unknown, Issue: July 1998, Topic: Coffee hour

The monthly coffee hour at the Tsukuba Information Center falls on Wed., July 22 from 2 to 4 pm. The topic will be the Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers (JOVC), and the presentation will be made by Mr. Takeo Ito, the secretary general for the supporting organization of JOVC Ibaraki and an instructor at JICA (Japan International Cooperative Agency). He will be assisted by Aki Kubota, who is also an agricultural instructor at JICA. She spent two and a half years in Kenya working for JICA. The following are synopses of their presentations:

Takeo Ito: JOVC was established as a project of the Japanese government in 1965. Since then, more than 16,000 Japanese youth have been sent to about 60 developing countries around the world. At present, there are about 2200 such volunteers, with about half of the volunteers presently being women, a large increase over the percentage in earlier days. 269 volunteers have gone from Ibaraki, and 39 (including 13 women) are presently serving in foreign countries.
