Program Background

A scene from an emergency report on the political changes in Sudan at our office.

It is important that JVC takes actions together with people in Japan in order to change the roots of problems in various places in the world. We therefore consider it as our important function to convey information about the situations in various places in the world and local people’s voices that are hardly heard and to ignite people’s interest and empathy with international cooperation. We are aiming at expanding a network of international cooperation by dispatching information face to face on special occasions such as events, lectures, and receiving visitors from schools. We also approach more people through the media to encourage them to take actions in their individual ways. Additionally, we consider it important to work together through a network of citizen’s organizations in order to solve global issues.

Events, Lectures, Development Education

We organized or took part in 74 events in 2019 and reported about our activities. Additionally, we gave 26 lectures and lessons in organizations, elementary, middle, and high schools, and universities. We received students of 14 schools during their school trips to Tokyo and taught them about international cooperation. We also conducted a campaign for collecting donations from monthly donors by setting up a special website from February 27 to April 30, 2020 in commemoration of JVC’s 40th anniversary. In 2020, the new corona virus affected our activities, so we increasingly hold online events. We will occasionally update the latest information on our website. We are happy to give a lecture at your organization or school. Please feel free to ask us for more details.

Media Coverage

Besides the direct transmission of information through events, we appeared on various media such as newspapers, radio, and television to appeal to a broad range of people. We were introduced 102 times in the media in fiscal year 2019.
