On April 18, 2024, Ambassador Kagomiya visited the Palikir Early Childhood Education (ECE) Center to observe the activities of Ms. Nanako Koe, a Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteer (JOCV) and witnessed her health checkup and school lunch.
Ms. Koe started working on Pohnpei Island as a nutrition expert in 2023, contributing to nutritional management and health checkups at various schools and educational institutions.
Ambassador Kagomiya received a warm welcome from everyone at Palikir ECE Center, deepened his understanding of JOCV's activities and the educational scene in this country, and warmly encouraged Ms. Koe.
The JOCV program is one of Japan’s technical cooperation schemes operated by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) as part of Japanese Official Development Assistance (ODA). Under this program, Japanese citizens who wish to participate in assisting developing countries in various areas including administration, agriculture, manufacturing, tourism, education, medical care, health care, and social welfare are dispatched.
