On May 11, in the Africa qualifier of the Tokyo Olympics for women's softball held in South Africa, Botswana won first place, and was able to advance to the European and African qualifiers which will be held in the Netherlands at the end of July. We still cannot take our eyes off the fight for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics competition. In order to support the outstanding women's national team of Botswana, Chukyo University’s Women's Softball Club travelled to Botswana as members of the Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers (JOCV) twice in February 2018 and in February this year, and played matches with the national team and offered technical support there.

June 6, 2019
This is the 25th year since genocide in Rwanda is thought to have killed anywhere from 500,000 to a million people. As support for ex-combatants and others with disabilities was quite limited, JICA undertook a program of skills training and job obtainment assistance for such individuals, following up by monitoring the living conditions of those who received such support in a comprehensive, long-term initiative aimed at reinforcing the country’s efforts to build peace and reconstitute a resilient society in which conflict cannot happen again.
