Community library in Oshika, Japan

Organized by: Lucie Kapner

THE STORY:

When the earthquake and tsunami hit Japan on March 11, 2011 it wiped out many rural coastal fishing villages. The residents who survived were moved to temporary housing further inland. Now 3 years later the residents are still in those temporary units. Rebuilding their towns is not just about where they live, it is about their community.

I am working in the village of Ohara, on the Oshika peninsula, to build a community library. This will give residents a much needed place to gather and connect. This week I am in Ohara preparing the site and working with community leaders and neighbors.

The money I am raising will help pay for local craftsmen and building supplies.

This is my second big project to support the people of Tohoku. Right after the earthquake, when I was living in Tokyo, I organized a bicycle drive for the people who lost their cars and the kids who were living in shelters.
