Meet in Our Community

MAFGA provides programs that bring cultural experience near you in everyday life through having meals, going out together and sharing experience.

“Kizuna”, a home-visit program for a foreign student

This program receives foreign students from all over the world as a city resident living in the same community and promotes mutual multicultural understanding and international exchange.  Specifically, the program involves family-based exchange activities including having meals at home, going out together, etc.  This is not a home stay program.  “Sleeping over” is not involved.  “Kizuna”, a volunteer group operating the home-visit program, also hosts cross-cultural events as necessary.  “Kizuna” collects host families from July to September and February to March.  Contact MAFGA for more information.
