Challenge

Children suffering from mega earthquake struck Kumamoto, Japan in April 2016. Many children are forced to be away from their houses, stay in evacuation centers creating stress. Minor earthquake is still occurring regularly.

Solution

Create opportunity for children to be away from where they are, to relax and enjoy nature. Through those experiences, children will be able to relief their stress and gain positive energy. Also, visiting the community heavily damaged by earthquake and tsunami i 2011 will give children opportunity to feel and think how they should be.

Long-Term Impact

We have organized a tour in October for fifteen children. They have felt many positive impact through their visit. We have learned that children under these circumstances should be away form where they are. Creating network and hope to children that they are not alone will be kept in their heart to support their lives.
