The Okinawa Prefectural Education Board and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) plan to send teachers to Bolivia and Laos from the 2015 fiscal year. The head of the education board Akira Moromizato and the head of the JICA Okinawa International Center Makoto Kashiwaya reached an agreement at the prefectural education bureau office on August 28.

JICA will work with the prefectural government to recruit teachers and choose candidates.

They plan to send a teacher to “Colonia Okinawa,” one of the settlement sites established by Okinawan Bolivians, every year for two years. The teachers will be sent to two schools in two of the settlement sites. They will carry out the project until the 2021 fiscal year.

The prefectural government and JICA also plan to send a teacher to a junior teacher training college in Laos every year for two years. They will carry out the project until the 2017 fiscal year.

The teachers selected to go to the countries will take a training course from next April. Their placements will commence in July.
