Who: You, Cal students, Rotaractors, and Rotarians!
What: Come out to the Cal Rotaract/Tomodachi Initiative Great Big WAPI build where we’ll be playing the role of WAPI building instructors and event coordinators for 300 visiting Japanese youth.
Where and When: Meet at the Clark Kerr Grand Courtyard at 12 pm for WAPI building training. There will be 350 seats being set up so it shouldn’t be too hard to miss. Contact 916-690-0545 if you need help.
Why: The Tomodachi initiative is a public-private partnership that supports Japan’s recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake, and invests in the next generation of Japanese and Americans in ways that strengthen cultural and economic ties, and deepen the friendship between the U.S. and japan over the long-term.
WAPIs, pasteurization indicators that assist in saving fuel and preventing waterborn illnesses, have been an important ongoing component of Rotaract’s service repetoire. By building WAPIs together, we will play an important part in deepening the friendship between us Americans and the Japanese over our mutual desire to help others.
