On the first and second Saturdays (1st and 8th June) from 4pm to 4:30 in Japanese and from 4:30 to 5pm in English, KIC students from Africa share their stories about what has surprised them once in Kobe, Japan, what they have found out through their life there, and other things they found intriguing and mind-blowing in Kobe or in Japan in general.
This time also, not a student from Africa, but a Japanese guest.
He is Mr. Takada from JICA who has been working in graduate school from this March.
Mr. Takada has been stationed in Africa and Asia for many years as a JICA staff member, and until this February he has been stationed in the field for three years as director of Rwanda’s JICA office.
First of all, it starts with a memory with Kobe, and it has been told that he has been appointed to Turkey which is deeply related to Kobe after the Kobe earthquake in 1995.
He also talked about what he saw as a local JICA director about “Grassroots project” in Rwanda.
They are with our regular personalities, Ms. Funayama (Left photo: Having worked in multiple African countries) and Prof. Nsenda (Architect originally from Democratic Republic of Congo and graduated from Osaka university graduate school).
