 100th Memorial Shimin (Citizens)-Clean-Walk

We took part in the 100th memorial event of "Shimin-Clean-Walk" as volunteers. On June 6th (Sunday), 35 volunteers from our current students, graduates and teachers took part in the memorial 100th event of "Shimin -Clean-Walk" organized by Kobe Citizen Exchange Association. The cleaning event was started through heartfelt communication and cooperation between the victims of the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake which claimed thousands of peoples' lives and volunteers who visited Kobe after the disaster. On the day of the event, the volunteers from our school were very much welcomed to join the activity with about 100 local citizens. They were walking from Chuo Ward Office in Kobe Sannomiya to Higashi Yuenchi Park for an hour, picking up cigarette butts, noncombustible garbage and recyclable garbage such as cans, and separating them according to type. At the destination of Higashi Yuenchi Park, all of them looked with deep emotion at "A Light of Hope", which is a memorial monument to pray hope for the victims. It is just the fourth time for our students to participate in this volunteer activity. But the number of participants will be growing at every event. Clark are determined to actively promote our participation in social activities on every occasion.
