Volunteers for Elders (Japan)

YSP-Japan Yamagata chapter held a project, “Volunteer for Elders” in Yamagata, Japan where 17 students were able to attend on June 2nd and 23rd. It was a new project that youths and students made for helping elders who have some physical difficulties due to aging. Aging of the society is one of the big problems of Japan. The youths wanted to make a strong relationship between youths and elders through the project. YSP Yamagata has made two groups and tries to help with some household chores. June 2 was a very hot day, but the youths felt happy doing it. The elders appreciated them so much.
