Donation to all 584 high schools in 5 prefectures affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake:

Donation of all 26 completed volumes of the Waseda University Booklet “Thinking Post-Quake”

The Waseda University Office for Aiding Reconstruction from the Great East Japan Earthquake donated 26 completed volumes of the Waseda University Booklet “Thinking Post-Quake” to all 584 high schools (including vocational high schools and schools for special needs education) in the five affected prefectures (Aomori, Iwate, Miyagi, Fukushima and Ibaraki). The series was published to aid in reconstruction from the Great East Japan Earthquake by broadly sharing with society the wisdom, contemplation and activities gained through various research and support projects which were headed by Waseda University students, faculty and staff. “I hope that our students will read the booklets and use the wisdom as nourishment for their future,” said Principal Shinji Hiraga of Iwate Prefectural Miyakokita High School, one of the schools to which donations were made.

The donation was made possible by support from the “Waseda Supporters Club,” which provides continual financial support to projects related to education and research by Waseda University.
