What does cancer mean to children? In Japan, cancer education has been provided in many schools in recent years, but it has been somewhat adult-oriented and not always from the children’s perspective.
This is a reflection of our involvement in the field of education in Japan and China through JICA grassroots projects. By learning about local folklore and the lives of people in the past, they will also learn how people have faced and survived illness and how to think together about today’s theme of cancer across regions and countries.
We would like to give the children the opportunity to think and discuss what kind of future they would like to see for themselves.
