[The Great East Japan Disaster : Community Building]
Last weekend, the JISP team visited a newly established public housing complex of 9 house-holds in Ofunato town, Iwate Prefecture.
This was the first time the new residents were able to gather together, in what became a precious opportunity to facilitate neighborly relations among the new community.
JISP’s Nepal Team, led by the facilitator Bijay Gyawali ,introduced Nepali handwriting, culture, and food and the participants showed some great team-work.
It was heart-warming to see the participants’ positive attitude toward their new neighbors and toward their new community.
