“ I researched homelessness of South Africa. … there are many causes of homelessness.
About seven million people are settler from Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi because of economic problem, drought, politics problem and so on ,,,,. And also in UN research, about 500 000 families have been evicted and tens of people, including children have been killed in the chaos surrounding the evictions process.
My research based on official company’s research. So, these numerical values are not exact. So I think homeless in South Africa is more than research.
So I think the government, agency who help homelessness, also all of the people in the world try to help the homelessness because they also have human rights.”
“ There are four things I like about the social issues project. First I could learn about homelessness in Japan. I researched homelessness in Japan. I didn’t know that ‘the BIG ISSUE’ helps them. Second I learned to do presentation. It was very difficult for me, but it was very interesting.
There are two things I didn’t like about the social project. First Homeless people’s picture was very painful… Second I didn’t like to research population, number of homeless people and so on. It was very difficultly things…
I think 1 Kaede should do the social issues project next year for these reasons. First there is not chance to know these matters. We often leftover at meal. We can eat about any times. But homeless people cannot eat satisfaction. We unconscious in general this terrible matters. So we should know this matter.”
