"Cheerful children make a bright future!"

 Reconstructing the environment around our children

Pact has three main activities: supporting children via the Michikusa Room, matching volunteers with local needs and running a boarding house sited in a refurbished schoolroom.

Ms. Furuno, as the Head of Child Support, works to improve the environment surrounding local children. "The reconstruction work on the town is gradually progressing, but there are still temporary housing units on school grounds, and no plans to build new parks," she said. However, Ms. Furuno has high hopes for Rikuzentakata's future rebuilding work. "These children will eventually grow up to support the town, so I want them to be glad they were born here."

Continued support

Ms. Furuno also called for the support of more volunteers. "Five years have passed since the disaster and, although some people continue to help, the numbers are falling. Volunteers provide Rikuzentakata with huge encouragement because we know people are still thinking of us. The natural surroundings are beautiful, so please consider coming to help out."
