Message from Embassy of the Dominican Republic (ドミニカ共和国大使館)

“This year I had the honor to collaborate with Karuta Project as a juror for Dominican Republic’s drawings. Then I had the opportunity to get to know this amazing initiative that brings education to children around the world through art and culture. Despise the unfortunate appearance of the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide and not being able to connect physically, Karuta Project has made children of all continents to connect in a deeper level, through their imagination.

I wish the best to Karuta Project organizers so they continue their amazing work for years to come.”

Joselyn Saladin
Ministra Consejera

「今年、ドミニカ共和国の絵画審査員として、Karuta Projectとコラボレーションするという栄誉を得ました。そして、芸術文化を通じ世界中の子どもたちに教育を提供する、この素晴らしい活動を知る機会を得ました。世界的にCOVID-19が流行し、物理的につながることができない不幸な状況にも関わらず、かるたプロジェクトは、すべての大陸の子供たちが想像力を通じて、より深いレベルでつながることを可能にしました。
