# Background
The Japanese member of CARE International, a body of 10 autonomous member organizations based in the US, Canada, and Australia using over 50 years of skills and experience to help those living in poor and disaster-stricken areas take charge of their own lives. (The international organization as a whole implements more than 400 projects in 60 developing countries involving over 665 million dollars in funds.)


TTE's contribution (300,000 yen) will support ongoing Cambodia/japan student exchange

Despite having art class as part of their curriculum, many Cambodian elementary and middle schools presently lack the art supplies and trained teachers to conduct such classes.
Rainbow Project activities include holding art workshops to coach Cambodian teachers in teaching methods and conducting painting classes for children.

Workshops conducted in Cambodia as part of this year's Rainbow Project. Due to a lack of art supplies and teachers, arts and crafts classes had been rarely conducted in Cambodian schools. Under the guidance of instructors from Japan, teachers and students--many whom had never held a paintbrush--attempted to paint pictures and make masks. They had lively expressions on their faces as they immersed themselves in their works.
