ROAD project

Assisting Japan’s Disaster Recovery

In the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Northeastern Japan, The Nippon Foundation immediately created "The ROAD Project" to undertake relief and recovery efforts in the disaster struck areas. The damage has been immense, but through the devastation, one thing that has shone out is the remarkable resilience of the Japanese people.

The ROAD Project stands for Resilience will Overcome Any Disaster--an acronym reflecting this trait. In cooperation with local NGOs who share the same spirit, we have initiated a wide range of relief and fundraising activities.
