Please maintain your safety measures against COVID
19 and stay healthy”

Hello, I am Afsari, a M2 student from Empowerment
science laboratory. I am honored to get a chance to share
about our FGI class which has been held today!

So, what might be the first question in our mind?

“What is FGI?”

In our FGI class, Anme sensei explained about FGI and
its overall purpose. FGI (Focus group interview) is a way
to gather a lot of information which are very close to the
real life of people by applying group dynamics because
in a single person to person interview that much information
can’t be obtained.
The main purpose of this FGI is to get an overall idea of general
background information on a theme of interest. If one person in
a group talks about one topic other people also feel interest to
express their opinion in that topic.

Zhang san, a member of our empowerment lab conducted
the interview session. Participants were so happy to get a
chance to talk and share about themselves.

Li san, another lab member gave a lecture about FGI. We
learned about the elements of group dynamics which are
Interpersonal, Intrapersonal and Environmental, the method,
advantages and limitation of FGI.
Also, Wang san, M1 student of our lab made a wonderful
presentation about it. Except our lab members, some students
have also participated and presented today.

It is indeed a great opportunity for us to learn about FGI and
empower ourselves.

Hopefully, in near future, we can also implement this kind of
focus group interview for data collection in our own country
and empower others.

So, Good luck everyone in the journey of making a world of

Empowerment café workshop on 14th May.

With the severity of the COVID-19, please take good care of

Hello, everyone! I am Liu, a first year Ph.D. student in our
Empowerment Science Lab. And today I am glad to share
the empowerment café with you.

The theme of today’s café is “Children need to play even with corona”
and still held online because of Covid-19.

Aramaki-sensei introduced us to many games that we can play
with children, such as dancing and songs. For the practice part,
the children who participated in the café chose their favorite
songs, and we played with the children together. It can be seen
that the children had a very enjoyable café.


Due to the impact of the global epidemic, children’s
communication with others has decreased.This will affect
the child's development. As a member of Empowerment,
we need to change this situation, to empower children
and to support them.

Even in the Covid-19, it is our responsibility to give children
a good growth Environment..

Let’s looking forward to seeing again at next empowerment
