If you have the time, please come to visit us. [laughs]
Thanks for your time.
Thank you so much.
[laughs] Sunit. I went to Thailand last month with one of the judge of this award.
Right. Are there any ideas about the connection with the Asian countries to do the social programs?
[laughs] Right. I think the only problem we have is the language diffrences.
Then we will do this weekend in Tainan, and it will be continued.
Yeah, “Facing the Ocean”.
Code for All is for all over the world, but if we can gather Asian countries, we can discuss and work with more. Especially for some similar issues which comes from Asian culture.
When we do some good action, maybe we can copy each other, but how to communicate is my…We have to make some [non-English speech] common community. We already have the Code for All.
The last thing is that when I joined the hackathon with g0v, I think there are so many similar problems in Taiwan, Japan, and other Asian countries.
Yeah, tradition and…
Because of the elder people, of the…
Maybe the first thing is that we have to change the law like this. After that, we also have to change the [non-English speech] .
They say. By policy, but… [laughs]
The law is changed, and also the people’s mind is changed. In Japan, some of the local regulations changed.
We have to change more in the real world. [laughs] In Taiwan, I think that it’s already changed.
Old days, Japan make the “The Law for Equal Employment Opportunity of Men and Women”. In that law, it looks like changed. But in the real life, there’s so many stereotype. Still we have. Even if they are women, they can’t understand what is the bias.
The language is not the main…
We use for the sex, the gender.
It’s not the same word, but the adults, including mainly the teachers and parents, don’t want to talk about sex. They don’t have the correct idea to talk to children, because it’s…
When we talk about sex education, Japanese people don’t want to talk about sexual things. They refuse. They cannot separate the sexual things and the sex. [laughs] That’s why we have some difficulties to do the sex education.
To help any kinds of children, they have to learn the equal rights when they are young. It’s about disable, it’s about sexual things, it’s about culture, or the [non-English speech] , everything.
And the children who have the program with the parents or the families go out to the city. In the case of the young girl just go around in the night, out at night, some adults get them to join the sexual industry, the maid cafe where the girls wear ...
When we do the training in that context, we realized that some of the children with autism or ADHD included in that area, and the girl also included in the area because of the environmental factoers…how can I say. In Japan and most Asian country, maybe women is weaker than ...
The children who do the…
Thank you. One more thing that I want us to talk about the sex education, because…Hold on a second. Now our company tries to do the training in the [non-English speech] .
Now the children can choose homeschooling?
The next one is, even when we make the inclusive education, some of them don’t want to go to the school even if it’s inclusive.
To reject the unconscious bias?
You said that in g0v summit 2018.
Yes. And I want to ask you about Taiwan. What is going on in Taiwan, and what is happen about inclusive education in the future you imagine. When you want to make inclusive education, what is the things that you plan to do in…
It works in the Tokyo now, but it’s not in the local area, because we don’t have it across in the other places in the local cities. That’s why we try to get the communication with the schools and centers to…
Their goal is full inclusion. The ways to inclusive we do the one-on-one style communication training or some learning training.
Our centers are focus on the children with autism, so we have the special classes for such children. We train them to join the classroom, so I mean there’s special care for inclusive way.
Our company working for the inclusive…
In that case we have to make some more care in the education, in the elementary school, we have to take care more than before. That’s why we have to hire more teachers, but because the number of the children decreased, the government don’t want to use money for education.
Yes, so that’s why.
The bias is little bit lower than before so that…
Because people can understand what is going on. Before that, 10 years ago, it’s very difficult for the parents to understand their children had disabilities, but now more easily to get understand to that.
