In March of 2013, twenty-three high school students and two teachers from the Olathe School District were selected to participate on a study tour to the Tohoku region of Japan. The purpose of the tour was to not only see the effects of the Great East Japan Triple Disaster but to meet with professors, researchers, community leaders, farmers, witnesses and survivors to hear their stories and learn firsthand about the plans for rebuilding communities and lives that were affected by this devastating event two years earlier. They spent time in Miyagi Prefecture near Sendai, an area that suffered terribly from the tsunami. Students will share details about the Kizuna Project, their itinerary, highlights, touching moments and what they learned from this life changing trip. They'll also be able to show photos of communities where everything was lost and report about how those communities are rebuilding.
