Katariba (“place for sharing” in Japanese) is a Tokyo-based non-profit organization established in 2001 (registered as Specified Nonprofit Corporation in 2006) that envisions “a society flourishing with young people who are energetic with strength to overcome life’s challenges”.
Two "night schools" have been in operation in the tsunami-affected towns of Onagawa, Miyagi and Otsuchi, Iwate after the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011.
Katariba's flagship work is to train and dispatch teams of university students to high schools and to facilitate workshops on career development.
Our Afterschool Program was reported on the Nikkei Newspaper, Japan’s leading business daily.
Collaborative Schools have received a donation from Nutrition & Sante Group
In July 2012, the Onagawa Night School has turned a year old.
