We hope our extended family, including host families, teachers, and buddies, are doing well during this unprecedented, uncertain time.
Canada, and some other countries, are taking first steps at removing some social and economic restrictions. However, the Covid-19 virus pandemic is still present in many other parts of the world. Japan has extended their state of emergency for some prefectures until the end of May.
Due to ongoing International travel restrictions and quarantine rules for those travelling abroad (both in Canada and Japan) all our summer programs have now been cancelled. At this time we are not able to predict when students will be able to travel overseas on short term study-abroad programs.
In the meantime, GPI NA has been working with some host families and buddies to develop on-line programs to keep our connection with the Japanese students and schools. We sincerely appreciate the ongoing support.
If you are interested in helping us to provide On-line Live interactions with students, please contact GPI NA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will continue to provide periodic updates on this website and our FB page.
Take care, and stay healthy!
