I worked with an organization in Japan called smile kids. Smile Kids Japan encourages and helps communities in Japan build culturally diverse teams of dedicated volunteers to regularly visit children at their local orphanage(s). With regular visits, volunteers provide children who rely on those orphanages with big brother/ big sister mentorship and cultural exchange through educational and fun activities. I only volunteer about every 2/3 months. This organization belongs to the government. I only go when they request me to come. I work with my friends Rachel and Julie, who are the leaders of the volunteers. Together(with the rest of the volunteers) we would come up with activities for the children and spend a Saturday with them.
