Walking around Bunkyo
IVUSA Team Tokyo Hakusan is a volunteer club that volunteers around Bunkyo Ward, where the Toyo University Hakusan Campus is located. Volunteer activities are carried out on weekday nights and weekends, mainly focusing on "disaster prevention" and "education support for children". Last year, all volunteer activities were cancelled due to COVID-19. but so we started a “Machi aruki”, walking around the city, "to get to know more about Bunkyo Ward, where
the university is located. At the "Machi aruki" held few days ago, seven students from Grade 1-3 walked around the university together. We checked the equipment used in the event of a disaster and visited facilities such as the library and children's house that were taken care of by volunteer activities before the pandemic. We also introduce the volunteer activities that we had done before, so it would be great if we could bring the fun and charm of the IVUSA Tokyo Hakusan Club. If you are interested in volunteering, please feel free to contact us!
