Here is the tour schedule (subject to change):

Please make sure to bring some snacks with you as there is nowhere to purchase them at the House of Sharing. Small gifts for the grandmothers will also be appreciated. Also, the grandmothers love music and dance! If you are a musician, please feel free to bring your instrument or to prepare a song to sing. Or, if you can dance, please don’t hesitate to perform for the grandmothers. They will really appreciate your efforts.

Thank you so much for visiting us and supporting the survivors’ struggle for justice!
