As the activities of Kopernik which aim 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) match the direction of CSR activities of the JAL Group, we will promote "Connecting People to People, Bridging Japan and the World" Project to enhance the effect of activities through collaboration.
In addition, JAL will provide ongoing support to Kopernik's activities, including providing air tickets.

Enabling support to deliver 800 water filters to approximately 160 schools,
"Let's Deliver Water Filters to Schools in Indonesia!" Charity Mile
We will call for Charity Mile in units of 3,000 miles to JAL Mileage Bank members from July 1, 2013 (Mon) 10:00 (Japan Time) to September 30, 2013 (Mon).
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.
By delivering simple water filters to Indonesian schools, two goals will be achieved which are to provide safe drinking water to students and to promote the reduction of plastic garbage.
Reports of the contribution achieved by actually delivering the water filters to schools in Indonesia will be made later this year.
