View of the tent
Thank you very much for your kind donations to get the Isatomae community starting their economic activities. With donations from one company and the Japan Forest Biomas Network, a larg-sized tent which can contain about fifteen to twenty shops were built. Still, it needs to have electricity, water, toilet, doors, condensation facility, etc. In addition to your donation and money the DSIA is trying to raise through the GlobalGiving, the Refugee International Japan, and the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan are helping us to raise money for completing the construction of the tent. Hope, it will soon beome usable. But we still need some more donations to complete the tent and also help shops to start their businesses. People in Isatomae community now started discussing how to operate the tent and when to open shops. They now started cherishing a dream of rebuilding their community. The effects of the tent construction really generated a big boost in people's motivation.
