For the second year in the row, Kamakura Jidou Home Children's Home/Orphanage has asked NPO Playground of Hope to take part in their yearly summer festival.
We are asked to run the Dagashi (traditional Japanese candy) fishing game. Basically there are bags of dagashi in plastic bags, put into a small kids pool, and the kids try to "fish" them out with a clip/string on a chopsticks.
So the volunteer tasks include putting together the candy bags, and helping take tickets or stamping kid's cards when they play the game. We can work in shifts, so that people can also enjoy the festival, that has other food stalls, crafts and entertainment put on by the children.
If volunteers can help pitch in anywhere from 5,000yen-10,000yen it will help to cover the costs for the candy and materials.
