One of our volunteers, Baba Rie JV finished 2 years activity as a teacher of Japanese language and culture in Naryn Oblast Children's Educational Center (Naryn Doc). Baba Rie JV, or as her students call her "Rie Sensei", during the period of volunteer activity, held 6 different festivals at Naryn Doc. The festival of "Japanese Culture and New Year" was special for her, teachers and all guests, since children demonstrated everything that Rie Sensei taught them. Traditional Japanese dances, songs and performance on Japanese drums "Wadaiko" were played. We hope that the children will continue to make a best effort to achieve what they want to do and love Japanese culture even after Rie Sensei returns to Japan.
