Budget and Project Plan

As of April 1, 2016

Project Plan

 

Long Term Vision

 

Fukushima is still under great duress from the Great East Japan Earthquake Disaster and the TEPCO Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant Disaster. In order to give long term support to the region, we will maintain activity as an organization by establishing a sustainable project plan and budget plan.

 

In all activities, the type of aid and environment required by the parties will change with time. Specifically, in the Soso region in the North Eastern coastal plains area of Fukushima encompassing the cities of both Soma and Futaba, the specification as evacuation areas are being gradually phased out. Numerous challenges will likely arise is these areas.

 

What we need is a system that is attentive and able to respond to these changes, budget flexibility and links to other organizations. To this end, we will gather information to grasp the current situation and maintain connections with local governments and private entities through site visits and active participation in conferences. At the same time, we will explore collaboration partners to enable our Kanagawa-based organization to maintain a long term engagement with the region.

 

2016 Project Plan

 

The three pillars of this activity is direct action (actions taking place within Fukushima Prefecture), local action (activities taking place in Kanagawa Prefecture) and information dissemination. These are separated into 10 operations to establish the budget plan.

 

Operation 1:  Direct Action (Volunteer Bus)

There are 9 trips planned this fiscal year for the Volunteer Bus. We envisage actions in Odaka-ku, Minamsoma City up to October.

 

Operation 2: Direct Action (Wide ranging activities via personal vehicles, etc.)

Based on needs arising on the ground or at temporary housing, we envisage direct action using personal vehicles or public transport that fall out of the scope of Operation 1.

 

Operation 3:  Local Action (Aid to evacuees in collaboration with other organizations)

Through collaborations with other organizations based in Kanagawa, we plan to co-host or assist social exchanges mainly targeting evacuees in Kanagawa Prefecture.

 

Operation 4:  Local Action (Attendance at social exchanges and conferences on support for evacuees living far from their home region)

We plan to attend supporter conferences where evacuee groups and aid organizations come together in the Kanto Region in addition to activities planned in Operation 3.

 

Operation 5: Information Dissemination (Site visits and training)

We plan to coordinate local site visits to local governments in evacuation zones, twice a year. We will also have participants submit reports and collate them into a document to broadcast to the world.

 

Operation 6: Information Dissemination (Lectures, etc.)

We are planning to coordinate two events per year to invite lecturers from Fukushima for a chance to hear direct voices from the region. We will hold them on the same date as general meetings or social sessions to encourage participation by members as well as promoting the event to the general public.

 

Operation 7: Information Dissemination (Information dissemination through presentations at events)

We will promote our actions and local produce from the region by participating cost effective events such as civil activity fairs and others.

 

Operation 8: Information Dissemination (Broadcasting information via the website)

Broadcast information on tourism and local produce to promote various forms of support that brings life to Fukushima.

 

Operation 9: Disaster Restoration Support (Emergency response in the event of domestic disasters)

We have clearly documented a budget plan that allows disaster restoration support in the event of a large scale domestic natural disaster or similar event. Actual activities will be determined in response to the situation.

 

Operation 10: Relation Management (Site visits, meetings, etc.)

Site visits to maintain links to local governments and private entities on the ground as needed.

Supplemental explanation

 

* These figures represent new fund procurement required through grants and donations in this fiscal year. About 400,000 yen in total needs to be procured.

 

By operation, Operation 1: Direct Action (Volunteer Bus) claims about the half of the overall budget, but a large portion of this is covered by participation fees borne by the participants, with the balance being covered by donations and grants. Considering the cost burden to participants, higher participation fees risk lower number of participants. In fact, we have introduced a discount system for the first time in April 2016, resulting in an influx of new participants, so at the very least, we would like to maintain the current fee level without any fee increase.

 

A portion of the budget is also allocated to Operation 2: Direct Action (Wide ranging activities) and Operation 5: Information Dissemination (Site visits and training) to restrain cost burden on participants.

 

Further, while it is not recorded in individual fiscal year budgets, we require fund procurement to continue our activities in the long term, and we are currently in the process of gathering information to this end.
