Interview Recording Meeting with FM Radio for Kuraray Co. Ltd.,’s Randosel Project.
January 9, 2020: His Excellency Ambassador Dr. Bashir Mohabbat had the pleasure of recording an interview meeting for broadcast with members of FM Radio for Kuraray Co. Ltd.,’s Randosel Project at the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in Tokyo.
The Randosel Project’s backpack donation program has been administered since 2004 by manufacturer company Kuraray. After passing a rigorous inspection making sure all belts, straps, and buckles were attached and in good working order, each memory-filled backpack is shipped overseas as a gift from a schoolchild in Japan to a counterpart in Afghanistan. Each randoseru was packaged together with a kit of unused school supplies containing notebooks, pencils, erasers, colored pencils, and other unused supplies, along with a letter and photo from the young Japanese donor. In all, more than 120,000 Japanese school backpacks have been donated.
H.E. Ambassador Dr. Mohabbat extended his warmest welcome and appreciation to Ms. Maki Ogawa, Announcer and Interviewer for this occasion with Joystaff for FM Radio, for their kind visit to the embassy and interest in covering the efforts of Kuraray Co. Ltd.,’s Randosel Project. In return, Ms. Ogawa each expressed her thanks to H.E. Dr. Mohabbat for his kind words and for making time in his schedule to meet, welcome their staff members so graciously, and record. H.E. Dr. Mohabbat was delighted to talk about the Randosel Project as it not only helps to advance education for children in Afghanistan but also provides an opportunity to continue to deepen the relationship between Japan and Afghanistan.
