NUGELP students spent a day in Tohoku, Miyagi Prefecture.*
On February 22nd 2012, thirteen NUGELP students visited Miyagi Prefecture to offer their support to the community. Thanks to the detailed planning of "Oh Guts !", the local coordinator that received schools, institutions from outside the prefecture, the students visited the towns of Ogatsu, Onagawa and Ishinomaki. The area previously known for its beautiful coastlines, green mountains, oysters and scallops was heavily hit by the great tsunami of last year. Nevertheless, the students found the local community was determined to carry on regardless of the rubble that still remained. The experience has certainly left a strong impression on the participants, some who have expressed the community's strength as "brave and remarkable.”
