Currently, our NPO is inviting foster youth and alumni to send their essays, poems, and art works. A stipend ($100) will be given if work is used in the website. Written work will be published in the website in both English and Japanese.
One of the goals of our organization is to make youth and alumni’s voices heard. It is not easy to talk about your own personal stories. However, expressing yourself is a tool for self empowerment and a way to improve the child welfare system.
The IFCA website publishes youth and alumni’s essays and poems in both English and Japanese. This is probably the first and only project of its kind in the world. If your essay or poem is selected to be on our website, it will be translated so that the Japanese or English speaking audiences can share your experience.
In order to send us your work, please print this form, fill it out and mail it to the address below or email the PDF image of the signed form to the email address below.
