Each district were affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake, are beginning to close the reconstruction support center.
The reason for this is because each district affected by the disaster has changed direction to focus on the "activation of regional volunteer".
It does not require a volunteer disaster reconstruction assistance and volunteers, is that it is the happiest for the people affected by the disaster.
It may not have volunteer if people affected by the disaster who are felt to be happy and to be able to enjoy a peaceful everyday life is important.
We are local volunteers outside, must be respected most about it.
Because there is such a background, we decided to be a year of culmination "reconstruction assistance of volunteer activities in the affected areas" of T4, the 2014.
T4 is different districts live of each member.
Future, T4 members will continue to challenge and to the activities of local volunteers that I live, widening the scope of that hobby and to try to qualification.
Since the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred, T4 has been the activities of the initial disaster volunteer from two weeks after the earthquake.
After the summer 2011, we have continued to reconstruction support volunteer activities.
We were able to experience the earthquake support volunteer activities as a series of flows.
4 years, we have been able to learn it or face the challenge of a lot.
There were a lot that we did feel frustrated also that it was good.
We are hope to continue plunge in areas where their live.
I experienced a disaster volunteer of three that occurred in Saitama Prefecture in 2013, but not gas downdraft various things in each region, each time confusion occurred.
Those people in everyone involved in the disaster volunteer who for the first time, they did not have the basic concept of the volunteers.
Originally, by experience local volunteers Social Welfare Council in each region organized, we can learn the basic concept of the volunteer.
When you a disaster volunteer activities if there is no basic concept of volunteers, the volunteer activities that snuggle up to real intention which is deep in the heart of the people affected by the disaster is very difficult.
Some of the disaster volunteers, there was also in the swallow the words and temporary feeling of people affected by the disaster, it would be premature activity time, after all, and that got into trouble with the people who are affected .
It's easy caught if you do not carefully to the meeting and preparation, the volunteer activity's abuse.
There was also be or try activities that cannot be in the swallow the words and temporary feeling of people affected by the disaster, volunteer some take responsibility later.
Some volunteers that cannot be grown from the idea of "We are correct because of we are doing gentle".
Activities of local volunteers might be seem like a completely volunteer activity of volunteer activities and reconstruction assistance at the time of the disaster, but it is not.
Before other disaster and the Great East Japan Earthquake occurs, and has been doing in the area of that region.
Because after the disaster has occurred, scale of damage was greater, volunteers outside the region have a lot.
But, people have decided to continue to live the end the region is going to live in the district.
Volunteer outside the region does not have to go live in the district.
Welfare policies and legislation of the current Japan also has become "regional thing to do in the area" he said.
So, regional volunteer, we must be active throughout the country.
A lot of claiming the disaster volunteers does not know it.
One of the challenges after the Great East Japan Earthquake, we must consider the fact that the development of disaster volunteer.
There is also concern with the status quo, which overlooks the whole country.
Indeed, local community is sparse, people who are thin and long continued regional volunteers are few if accustomed to the Tokyo metropolitan area.
In each district affected by the disaster have any edge, T4 is continuing for four years disaster volunteer activities and reconstruction support volunteer activities.
There are many that cannot be communicated only to members T4.
For each member, will plunge the "4 years in the affected areas" to fellow hobby and local community, I will reduce the frequency of activities in the affected areas of T4.
Because, whether in the context of the local community, whether to colleagues hobby, and to be able to build a relationship of trust, people will not listen to talk kindly.
In order to build a relationship of trust, time, we, must be comfortable sense of distance.
It must be adjusted before starting the regional volunteer, myself whether to match the thing you want to do my own and Ru Tokekome or volunteer in any circle.
T4 so team that respects the individuality of each other homely, trust relationship between members is deeper than any volunteer organization's.
When a disaster occurs in the district each member lives, we are not able to create a form that will continue to support all together.
So, we would like to make a little bit at a time also its shape.
I view all that sort of thing.
2015, at a pace of about once (long-term vacation time), together with colleagues who convenient fit, for the purpose of tourism the main, we're going to go play to the affected area is deep edge a year.
We will aim "to be reunited with those who want to, if possible reunion and enjoy the nature, enjoy the food and drink local" that .
To this end, the activities of 2014 will be the culmination of "reconstruction assistance volunteers in the affected areas" of T4.
Of course, we will continue to volunteer that can be at home, but have to step up.
In fiscal 2014, the "reconstruction assistance of volunteer activities in the affected areas" of T4, it is planned to only activities in the days of GW & August.
Of course, a big disaster when we got up in the disaster area if and activities in unplanned but, for now, T4 will be the culmination of activities twice.
T4 of the 2014 fiscal year is to step up to a new stage.
The fiscal 2015 or later, such as the importance that they would convey to someone close to the region and to step up to the further stage.
Everyone courtesy of making and how to join us in the activities of the GW & August 2014, the cooperation to a nice snack volunteer, I would really appreciate it.
T4 will do our best as a compilation positively the activity of 2014.
