【Welcome to NICO PROJECT!
In public schools in Japan, there are 43,000 non-native Japanese-speaking children who do not understand Japanese today. Not a small number of them do not understand teachers, cannot catch up with classes even if they attend classes, and cannot make friends due to the language barrier.
In addition, about 20 percent of such children do not receive any assistance from their local government or school, because it is hard to find teachers, or the budget is tight in smaller local governments.
NICO has been providing specialized Japanese language study and learning enhancement support opportunities to approximately 100 non-native Japanese-speaking children a year since 2010. NICO has provided support to children and youth aged 6 to 30’s of over 26 countries so far.
NICO was able to offer such opportunities to only limited numbers of students on site (off-line). Because of this and the desire to help more individuals, the organization explored the possibilities of providing Japanese language study opportunities to children across Japan who couldn’t reach such opportunities, unitizing the organization’s accumulated know how. It was “The NICO | Japanese Language x Children Project” that NICO developed after years of trial and error.
NICO PROJECT continues to proceed, aiming to be able to provide education opportunities by experts to all non-native Japanese-speaking children. 】
