The number of long-term absentees in elementary and junior high schools is about 290,000, of which about 200,000 are due to
non-attendance, which is the highest number ever. One of the characteristics of these children is that they tend to prefer information input through bodily sensations, and among them, there are many children who are well versed in the arts and crafts fields, which are difficult to evaluate in conventional school education. . We believe that opportunities to learn about handicrafts and how work should be done have the potential to increase the readiness (mental and mental readiness) of children who tend not to attend school to learn and work.
Therefore, Gakken Co., Ltd. has started the “GH (God Hands) Project” in collaboration with SPACE Co., Ltd., which provides optimal learning for each individual.
In the GH Project, through handiwork, we hope that you will realize that there is value that only you can create because there is no one hand in the same shape in the world. . Also, in the process, we aim to acquire the necessary knowledge and build a career that leads to work. What is the GH project?
We call the craftsmen who are passionate about handicrafts, whose unique creativity and skills shine, create unique value with their own hands, and are called “GodHands.” The goal of the GH Project is for all kinds of children to learn about the world of God Hands, experience the depth of “manufacturing”, and find their areas of expertise and a way of life and learning that suits them. The program includes a “real tour” where you can actually experience the work at the site, and an “online tour” where you can interact with God Hands by listening to stories.
