Authorized NPO ESA Asia Education Support Association
Held a walking program “Tekuteku Hatta” to realize “health promotion x social contribution”
Let’s get healthy at a walk event with Bangladeshi children!
The authorized NPO ESA Asia Education Support Association (Komae City, Tokyo/Chairman Tomoko Uchida) provides children in villages in Bangladesh with opportunities to learn so that they can live with their dreams and hopes on their own. To this end, we will hold a charity event “Tekuteku Hatta” in November, in which children from the village walk 10,000 kilometers from Japan to a village in Bangladesh. “Hatta” means “walk” in Bengali. With a dedicated app, you can walk anywhere you like, at your own pace, and aim for 10km. In addition, participants will receive a 10-minute yoga session delivered by a yoga instructor every day, a talk live with runner Rei Ueda, who
distributes plogging activities and podcast programs for runners, and a real event only for one day (optional). Yes, there is a
participation prize… It’s a greedy project that makes it fun and healthy, and it also contributes to society.

《What is the NEXT SMILE Project?》
Bangladeshi village children
Along with the rapid changes in the times these days, and in the course of our activities, there is an increasing need for changes in the education of ESA children.
Therefore, ESA would like to focus on the following education for children’s NEXT SMILE.
“Human rights education” that children know their rights and recognize the obligations of parents and adults around them
“Job Guidance” to expand your vision after graduating from school “Gender education” to nurture the ability for girls to protect themselves “Women’s Empowerment,” which teaches mothers and women’s social participation from various angles.
All of these are necessary learnings to live powerfully in the new era, and to aim for the realization of a community where each child can live with their own dreams and hopes.
