Message from the President


Dear Friends,
More than one year has passed since I took up the post of President of the Meguro UNESCO Association. Ms. Reiko Kato, my predecessor, and Ms. Isako Kato, her mother, made a great contribution to develop the Association in the Meguro City for the last half century. It was therefore a big honour for me to succeed them.
The Association is carrying out a lot of activities in various fields such as Japanese language courses, artistic performances, humanitarian events, and so on. Among others we have given a priority to help those who have suffered from a huge earthquake and tsunami in the northern part of Honshu, Japan, which took place in March 2011. For example, we have dispatched thousands of notebooks and stationery to pupils of schools in Kesennuma City, Miyagi Prefecture. Also, several fund-raising activities have been organized at Nakameguro Station on the Tokyu Line. Monies given by hundreds of passengers were deposited to the Japan Red Cross and the National Federation of UNESCO Associations in Japan.
One of the most important objectives of the Association is to strengthen friendship, mutual cooperation and understanding among people who live in the Meguro City. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you need any help. Every member of the Association is at your disposal. Furthermore, we shall be very happy if you could come and join us to carry out various activities together. Have a nice stay in Meguro as well as in Japan!
