As a clinical practioner at hospitals mainly in the Tokyo metropolitan area, Ozawa realized there was a need for a system that enables all children to pass on their own life stories to future generations. Currently, she is working to establish PIECES, a non-profit organization. She is the co-founder of Pe’Canvas, an educational program in which people learn through art and “asobi kichi,” which offers community activities to create a child-rearing environment where children and adults are on the same level.
