In 2017, they helped to run some classes in the primary school which is in crisis to be closed down by the shortage of children.

Onuma is located in Nanae town in the southern Hokkaido island, 30-60 min. distance by train from Hakodate city which is famous for the romantic view in the night, especially for sweet couples!

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

This workcamp has been organized with Onuma Milestone 22, a local NGO made by President of Fishermen’s Cooperative and Director of international exchange association since 2004. Though Onuma lake has been a popular tourism spot for a long time because of its beautiful scenery, it has been polluted by over use of agricultural chemicals in cattle farming and erosion from abandoned forests with alien trees. President of Cooperative has bought a forest and wants to revive it to original nature with native trees! Volunteers will work and live together with the mid term workcampers (Jul. 20-Sep. 16) which volunteers are also recruited.
