The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (in Japanese: Monbukagakusho, English acronym: MEXT) offers scholarships to Canadian students wishing to pursue their studies at a Japanese university.
We – a small group of JET alumni – are looking for others to join us in a life-changing project: sponsoring a Syrian refugee family.
Those of us in the JET community know what it’s like to struggle in a foreign country, from figuring out groceries to navigating local transit. We want to tap into that wisdom and zest for adventure. Our group will sponsor a family through an organization dedicated to walking Canadians through the process of sponsoring Syrian refugees.
Please contact Amber Hildebrandt, Natalie Bay and Stephanie De Young at Senpai@jetaatoronto.ca.
