Agency: OGA for Aid
This project is designed to revitalize farming and business in Minami Sanriku, located in the Tohoku region, which was devastated by the March 2011 earthquake. With previous funding from REI, the project coordinators have created a successful green farming initiative that is helping to bring income, jobs and a sustainable food source to the region. To expand the initiative further, the project now requires vital infrastructure, equipment and personnel to build upon its success. Initiatives such as these are essential in attracting people and business back to the area and in providing those who never left a sense of normalcy once again.
