Let's Deliver Water Filters to Schools in Indonesia! - Charity Mile Project

We ask for assistance from JMB members through Charity Miles. The JAL Group supports activities conducted by Kopernilk that address social issues in developing countries such as improving the quality of life and reducing poverty.

Connecting People to People, Bridging Japan and the World Project JAL × Kopernik

Kopernik is a NPO that undertakes activities for "Connecting country to country," "Environmental conservation," "Improving sanitation and health in developing countries," (Safety and Security) and "Improving children's lives and expanding the opportunity to study" (Nurturing the next generation). These activities also resonate with the CSR activities of the JAL Group. Since 2013, we have been engaged in the Connecting People to People, Bridging Japan and the World Project to expand the impact of such activities through collaboration.
JAL will offer ongoing support to Kopernilk's activities, including the provision of air tickets.

In Indonesia, waterworks and water purification facilities are not established, and people struggle to obtain clean water. They may drink dirty water and damage their health. At home, water is boiled and sterilized to clean, thus large amounts of firewood is required which leads to deforestation. Poor household budget is oppressed when purchasing such firewood, and when going to gather firewood, children who take on the role must cut their time for school. Also, by burning large amounts of firewood, large volume of smoke is emitted. There is no end to people getting sick from this smoke, and large amount of carbon dioxide is released as well. In addition, when purchasing water, plastic garbage deriving from plastic bottles is an issue.
We have received 6,324,000 miles from 1,608 JMB members in "Let's Deliver Water Filters to Schools in Indonesia!" in 2013. This enabled support to deliver 800 water filters to 160 schools, providing safe drinking water to approximately 16,000 students.
We will ask your support through Charity Miles to deliver simple water filters to Indonesian schools again this year. Two goals will be achieved which are to provide safe drinking water to students and to promote the reduction of plastic garbage.
