Organizer: Iwate International Association

2012.01.14 (Sat)   etc.  / Place : Aiina

This is a workshop for ‘Foreign Multilingual Supporters’ who provide assistance for newcomer foreigners to Iwate.
Foreign Supporters provide advice on everyday life based on their own experiences as foreigners in Iwate. In order to do this, they must acquire knowledge and information regarding various systems essential to everyday life (immigration, tax, health insurance, etc.) and learn to effectively communicate this information. They also form a mobile network of supporters who can respond in times of disaster by providing interpretation and translation at evacuation centers and to confirm the safety of foreign residents.
