Project Report | Mar 25, 2019
To all the supporters of our project in Nishihara Village, Kumamoto

By Masataka Kawai | Project Coordinator

On behalf of the local residents of Nishihara Village who were benefiting from the support of GlobalGiving donors, I wish to extend my deepest gratitude.

From January to March, a total of 85 volunteers were mobilized who helped the 32 local families in harvesting and post-harvesting of sweet potatoes as well as harvesting of taro, Chinese Cabbage, and yuzu fruits. Compared with last year, the number of requests from the locals has declined. As they are gradually working towards self-reliance, the locals knew that they cannot depend from the volunteers forever.

Meanwhile, other than helping in the agricultural farms, we are also helping the locals in the maintenance of their common and public lands. Grass cutting and grass mowing at the public/common land are crucial in the prevention of wild fires which could damage the houses of the villagers, their farms, and their communal forests.

The volunteers have found a second home at the village and promised to help the locals every year. The “fans” of Nishihara Village developed great social bonds with the local villagers after helping them in their agricultural farms. They are aware of how their presence is motivating the locals to start living again.
