It is a day center to support a local life of people who have severe physical, mental, and multiple disabilities at 4 places in Osaka city. We aim to try anything for those people to go wherever they want to go, live however they want to live, and live an independent life. We go out to various places, do a wheelchair dance and art activities, as well as put much effort into international exchange activities. People in this day center are often not able to travel abroad. Therefore, in order for them to feel like they are abroad, we make our own approach by accepting working holiday students from other countries. We would like a volunteer who can come help us constantly to support daytime activities.
While you will watch over users of this day center, you will clean, do laundry, clean wheelchairs, change diapers, take baths, and support cooking with them.
