Pangaea Ring: Ms. Fukuko Watanabe
Hello everyone!

My name is Watanabe.
I have been translating monthly Pangaea news letters from Japanese to German as a volunteer staff for 4 years since 2008.

At the end of 2007, I found Pangaea when I was searching for the activity through which I could leverage my German skill that I had majored in University. I learnt that Pangaea was an organization that offered the place for the international communication for children in various countries and had wished to be able to contribute to their meaningful activities.

With such belief, I have been able to be a part of Pangaea activities to date. As I read the monthly newsletter, I find the existence of the strong leadership that lead the Pangaea’s steady activity.

Unfortunately, I had not had the opportunity to be at the site of the activity but have seen it through the video that Mr. Hanada had shown me. Kids in the video were very lively and I had developed the belief that their activity would produce international persons in future.

As a member who is in charge of the German translation, I must wonder if the activities in Vienna have been conducted periodically or not. Of cause, I am doubtful if my German is good enough to convey their message. I am also greatly interested in learning the difference in communications between Japan and Asian countries such as Korea, and European countries, if any. May be there are no such differences in children's communications!

Pertaining to the volunteer, people are very proactive about volunteering in Germany. I heard that 1/3 of the German is somewhat involved in the volunteer activities. The belief that the society is supported by the mutual-aid has been instilled and reflected in various institutions. I believe that Pangaea had embodied such volunteer splits.

I shall continue to look forward to learning active children's reports from Pangaea and pray for the further success.
