Let’s Talk Foundation > Who We Are > Organization Overview

After learning the scope of the damage caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake and the tsunami, we are committed to support the tsunami-hit area and the people until the day when every individual gains his/her strength and lives with confidence. In order to rebuild the tsunami-devastated area, we believe that it is vital that people, both domestic and international, remain connected and aware of the disaster area and its courageous people.

The first step in this effort is to ensure that the residents in the disaster affected area gain the appropriate skills to communicate effectively. We started ‘Komo’s English class @Rikuzentakata’ from November 2011 to provide English Language skills. Following the success of this initiative, in March 2012, the ‘Let’s Talk Foundation’ was established to organize efforts towards improving communications in English and ensuring individual stories and messaging was relayed out beyond Rikuzentakata.
