About "Fukushima Renewable Future Fund"

With the kind donation from Elektrizitätswerke Schönau in Germany, we establish "Fukushima Renewable Future Fund" in order to raise donation for the reconstruction of Fukushima where we focus on locally owned renewable energy projects, community development projects, education and social welfare projects. We are only half of the story to the reconstruction of Fukushima, and each and every person in Fukushima needs to lead it. Though every single effort would be small, we believe that the collective efforts would vigorously drive the society. Based on such a small step and hope, Fukushima Renewable Future Fund will build the future of Fukushima.
