Cost: 3000 yen for FEW members 5000 yen for guests (women only) includes buffet dinner and drinks.
In the spirit of helping the community and empowering women, one of FEW’s roles is to connect with several NGO’S and charitable organizations every year, learning about and assisting in their activities. The theme of the panel discussion will be “Volunteers: stories and how we can help”. Representatives from TELL, Peace Boat and Shine On! Kids will tell us about what it is like to volunteer for their organizations, and at least one volunteer will be on hand to tell us their own story in person. We hope that this will be an opportunity for FEW members and guests to get inspired by these organizations and their efforts to make our world a better place.
