Remote Support Using African Fabric | NHK WORLD-JAPAN News

A former Japanese volunteer (JOCV) who taught maths and Japanese in Gabon, returned to Japan but still helps the people of Gabon remotely.
He sells clothing, bags and other goods of African fabrics, made by disabled people in Japan. He uses his profits to buy new sewing machines, which he sends to Gabon, so that people there can make goods out of African fabrics themselves, for export to Japan.
"We can help fulfill their dreams even remotely if we stay in touch and do what we can, however small."

Helping people in developing countries is a worthy cause, but the corona outbreak has made many projects difficult to carry out. We look at how one Japanese man is offering support to an African country from afar.
