It has been 5 years since the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. The earthquake led to a rapid brain drain from the affected area to other areas. One of the most serious challenges is the sustainable revitalization of local economy.

Against such a backdrop, the fellowship program focuses on the following three areas.

1) Work to support people doing something new
Hope for Tomorrow, a nonprofit organization in Onagawa town, Miyagi prefecture, plays a hub function to connect local people with resourses outside the town, such as human resources, professionals and major companies. Fellows have made significant contributions to the organization utilizing their expertise.

2) Work to make money
Sweet Treat 311, a nonprofit in Ogatsu town, Miyagi prefecture, opened Moriumius, a new facility for experimental learning in 2015. Their 8-day retreat program to learn in rich natural resources, receives high commendations from participants from all over the world. Some of the fellows joined the organization as full-time staff.

3) Work to protect the lifestyle
In Tohoku, the number of elderly people who need public welfare service is very large. Link and Rehabilitation plus, a nonprofit working in Ishinomaki city, Miyagi prefecture, provide exercise programs to elderly people. In addition, working with fellows, they provided a training program to 60 local people so that they can support elderly people.
