Delegation from Thailand Visits Gifu University Faculty-Affiliated Farms
30 delegation members from Thailand consisting of officials who head the Bureau of Education and teaching staff of schools for special needs education visited Gifu University faculty-affiliated farms on Tuesday, December 9. As part of efforts for educational welfare, both Yanagido and Minokamo Farms (Gifu Field Science Center, Faculty of Applied Biological Sciences) employ persons with intellectual disabilities or accept them as trainees. 5 people, which account for one-fourth of the total employees, are currently employed and engaged in agricultural work at the farm. This time the delegates gave attention to approaches toward employment support made through cooperation with universities and special needs education in Japan and visited Gifu University faculty-affiliated farms. Dr. Iketani, Dean of the Faculty of Education, and Prof. Oba of the Faculty of Applied Biological Sciences took the delegation on a farm tour and delegation members watched workers pruning in a vineyard and removing dirt on egg-shell surface. They actively asked questions concerning employment conditions and works during the tour, and it turned to become quite a successful visit.
