The Japan NGO Earthquake Relief & Recovery Fund is making $200,000+ in multi-year grants to two groups. One grant will strengthen the underpinnings of the region’s nonprofit sector by helping the Sanaburi Foundation, the first community foundation in Tohoku, get off the ground.

A second one will help @Rias NPO Support Center operate “community buses” in Kamaishi City for youth–who have been cooped up in temporary evacuee housing and cannot take part in sports and after-school activities–as well as for senior citizens.
