On November 27th, Princess Tsuguko and Japan UNICEF held a workshop for 2nd year students at Midorioka Junior High School in Mito, Ibaraki Prefecture. The school has participated in UNICEF donations as part of "international education." Princess Tsuguko discussed the conditions other children face around the world and UNICEF's activities. There was some wonder among the students at meeting royalty but no one brought it up as Tsuguko was visiting as a UNICEF staff member, not an official public service.

Found old news for Princess Tsuguko. She participated in "UNICEF Week" at Chuo University in 2017.

November 28: She was a guest speaker for special lecture "The State of the World's Children and the Activities of UNICEF"
December 5: She guided group work and lectured for UNICEF Special Seminar 2017 "The future of children robbed by water - what we can do"

Report of the 9th International Week-Faculty of Economics Special Open Class: The State of the World’s Children and the Activities of UNICEF | News | CHUO UNIVERSITY -Knowledge into Action- (English)
Quote:
Princess Tsuguko spoke on various topics including the activities of UNICEF and the difference between the Japan Committee for UNICEF and UNICEF, and the reason why she first became involved in international cooperation. She introduced stories of UNICEF field staff, showing to the audience a ready-to-use therapeutic food, peanut butter flavored Plumpy’nut, which is distributed by UNICEF in areas of need. Also, a short video was shown on the lives of the children in developing countries and Syrian child refugees, to visually appeal to the audience. The Princess welcomed questions from the students at the end, and students asked her many questions, such as “Are there any cases where rationed items are not received by the target population or are used in an unintended way, and are there any measures to guard against such risks?” or “In a case that water wells or toilets are set up, are there any mechanisms created for local residents to control these?” The Princess graciously answered all of these questions one by one.
