The Rotary Club of Pocklington recently welcomed two Japanese students from Hiroshima to their meeting at the KP Club.

Sayaka Hashimura and Tomomi Yamasaki are Rotary scholars studying for an MA at York University.

After a meal they talked about their home and education at the University of Tokyo, and work experience in Nepal.

Here in York their course is dealing with post-war reconstruction and their first field work was in Kosovo. They are pursuing further work experience in Rwanda and Uganda in the Summer.
