Takaaki with his violin and Yoshimi in front of a bookshelf

Hello, it’s Yoshimi here.
As many of you know, I am sort of stuck in Japan since the end of March.
About a month ago, as I was playing around in the world of social media, I ran into livestreaming of my high school classmate, who now is a professional violinist.

here we are!
We decided to put together a mini concert.
He will play violin,
and I will read short stories and folk tales from Braille books.
We will take you around the world with music and stories.
This time, the session will be in japanese language, but hope you can enjoy the violin and the whole atmosphere.

Takaaki will be in his home studio in Tokyo,
and I will be reading from my bedroom in Kochi.
Sometime during the event, we will also call in our colleagues in Rang Mai Library in Phrao, Chiang Mai.

Places that we plan to visit

    The UK
    And a few other countries

Here, you can listen to “A whole New World,” covered by Takaaki.

About Bookworm Foundation
I set up Bookworm Foundation (formerly known as Always Reading Caravan) back in 2010.
We have three main projects:
1. Library with mobile library activities located in Phrao, Chiang Mai in northern Thailand.
2. Early childhood literacy centres for hill tribe children near Phrao.
3. Noon Noon Books (production of universal design picture books for children with and without disabilities)
Please feel free to visit our website here.

Call for Support
Thanks to the strong team in Phrao, Bookworm has been able to continue working throughout lockdown period in Thailand.
But most work related to fundraising had to be stopped because we have been heavily depending on personal fundraising where I would go and meet potential donors in person.
To keep Bookworm up and running, we really need your support now.
Every Yen, Euros, and dollars count.
During the event, you will be able to chip in using “busking” function.
But if you rather want to concentrate on the virtual world travel, you can always donate through PayPal before and after the event.
Or, you could also transfer your donation to our bank accounts in Thailand and Japan.
