Project Coordinator: Book Donation for Children

I provided a system to aid the children in Kyoto, Japan who do not have access to quality education by organising a book drive through school. I created a committee to help donate the books from school and also from students' homes to an organisation called 山科醍醐こどものひろば (kodomono hiroba), which will provide additional education to the children.
