Foreign Volunteers Japan – Take Part in Rebuilding an Island Community

Take Part in Rebuilding an Island Community

Habitat for Humanity Japan has begun open recruiting of volunteers for their next Fishing Community Community/Work space project on Izushima. Building will take place in two sessions 1) Dec 7th to Dec 9th and 2) December 10th to 12th. Participating for the entire build is also an option. There is a participation fee to cover food/lodging/ferry/gas/etc, but it’s a great experience, and a good chance to learn about life on a hard-hit fishery-focused island from the locals directly. The facility will be built all by hand, with the help of locals, volunteers, and a professional to oversee the process.
