Madam Ayumi Hasegawa shares gifts with pupils at Peace Hana School
System, as WFWP-Liberia Acting President Thelma Howard looks
In support of educational development and hygiene promotion among young school kids, a Japanese missionary and educator is in Liberia on a three-week mission.
Ayumi Hasegawa, who is an international volunteer of Women Federation for World Peace, is here as guest of the Liberian charter of the organization and the Peace Hana School System.
Located in Paynesville, outside Monrovia, the Peace Hana School System is a subsidiary of Women Federation.
Accordingly, as part of her many activities, Madam Hasegawa visited the Peace Hana School System and made a donation of several educational and non-educational materials to kids at the institution.
Speaking in an interview with this paper following the donation, she says her visit here is intended to share her love and joy with young school kids and promote personal hygiene among them (kids).
The Women Federation international volunteer points out that her visit is also geared to promoting programs and activities of Women Federation-Liberia and the Peace Hana School System.
“Since 1994, the Women Federation for World Peace visited Liberia and the Peace Hana School System was established in 1998. Since then, Japan has also been supportive to the Peace Hana School System,” she states.
“I came here today to present some football and other sports materials, educational materials and hygiene materials because we want to see the children play sports and practice good hygiene as they go to school,” Missionary Hasegawa underscores.
Hasegawa says decided to plan her trip at the Peace Hana School System on International True Parent Day to encourage parents to exhibit love for their children.
“Today is celebrated across the world as True Parents Day and so we are here to share love with the kids, and teach our parents how to have time and love for their children,” she indicates.
In remarks, the acting President of Women Federation for World Peace-Liberia, Madam Thelma Howard, lauds Missionary Hasegawa for her continued support to the children of Liberia, especially in the education sector.
Madam Howard says the gesture by the Japanese Missionary was not the first of its kind, noting that she has on numerous occasions identified with the school and the organization.
“As she has done in the past, she has come to give her love to Liberian children; she loves Liberia so much and so this is why she is here today to share her joy with the children on this day,” Thelma adds. Editing by Jonathan Browne
