Outline

Mother Teresa's words: "Even if 99% of life is unhappy, those who are happy with the last 1% are happy." As opposed to that, in this country, death is turned away as not auspicious, and as a result, at the end of life, the person and the family feel great feelings. For the most important end of the term, "Iyoi" is developing an initiative to spotlight "Oldness, Disease, Death".

Evaluation

Even though aging and death are unavoidable for anybody, we all tend to look away from such reality. How wonderful would it be to leave this world with a smile on your face? This extremely unique and positive project will surely significantly impact the whole country with its strong message. What left a lasting impression on me was that the elderly participants at the event put the biggest smile on their face, making me feel lucky to share such precious time. The overall project has gained high evaluation from the judges, including the preparation of the challenging plan, level of perfection that they created and impact on many different generations. It is also praise worthy that the government is involved as an active agent.
