To the Supporters of our Project in Tohoku, Japan

Following the devastating damage to the Natori City coastal area in Miyagi Prefecture from a massive tsunami caused by the Great East Japan Earth of March 2011, OISCA joined forces with a group of local victims to begin a coastal forest restoration project. Under that initiative, now in its eight year, through the end of May of this year, the area on which black pines and other tree species have been planted had reached 66.71 hectares.

One step ahead of the global trend to earmark priority budgets for disaster prevention and damage control, OISCA has long worked through mangrove planting, coral reef protection and other endeavors with such goals keenly in mind, primarily in Southeast Asia and Oceania. The Natori project is also rooted in the experience and lessons emerging from these track records.

Successful schemes in this pattern are characterized by:

  1. Close collaboration with national and regional governments
  2. Adoption of the resident-citizen participation format; and
  3. Consignment of work to professional forestation operators to help create jobs and other key points.

OISCA has been autonomously carrying out the project with donations and subsidies from private companies, organizations and individual supporters.

The actual tree-planting phase of this effort will conclude in 2020. OISCA, however, is determined to carry on the necessary weeding, cutting and other vital forest support and nurturing work as well.

Thanks to the generous support from, not only the Japanese but also a great number of people worldwide, including the Global Giving donors. We are deeply grateful for the donations. We do request for your continued cooperation.
