Industry restoration support (May,2011 - on going)

After research and investigations conducted since May, a new type of type of fund to support the restoration of industry, the General Incorporated Foundation Tohoku Kyoeki Toshi Kikin(Tohoku Common Profit Investment Fund), was established in December. The project was not only created to be a success in a specific business, but also as a "common profit investment" that would serve as a new regional industrial model that would regenerate local ties through its operation. With a plan for Civic Force to contribute 200 million yen from its donations and the remaining 300 million yen to be contributed by various businesses, the fund will support product development, marketing, sales promotion, and more.

Company volunteer dispatch (August,2011 - on going)

We began a project to dispatch various companies' employees to the island of Oshima, Kesennuma, Miyagi Prefecture in August. Since September, we have collaborated with Global compact Japan Network's disaster area restoration program, with a total of 284 employees from 9 companies visiting disaster-stricken Oshima. Each month, 3 groups are sent to stay on the island for five nights and six days, removing rubble and cleaning photographs. In December, we held a workshop to look bank at the activities conducted so far and consider future reconstruction activities. Starting in January, we plan to construct rafts to be used for oyster farming. We also plan to continue harnessing the organizational and technological strength of commercial companies to conduct activities.
