# Major Projects
All donations are used to purchase vaccines or equipment necessary to give inoculations (including motorbikes for transportation). Since 1998, they have focused on donating vaccines, motorbikes, electric generators, etc. to Myanmar, where they have received strong government support and are seeing results.

# Corporate Relationships
Since 1994, Japan Advertising Council (AC) has been developing donations campaign free-of-charge with cooperation from members of the media industry.

# Background
After goals and declarations such as the eradication of polio, a 95% reduction of death from measles, zero outbreak of tetanus among newborns, among others, were adopted at the UN World Summit for Children in 1990, a plan to vaccinate all of the world's children was developed around five organizations: World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Rockefeller Foundation, and the World Bank.
As an extension of this movement, Japan Committee, Vaccines for the World's Children (JCV) began. With cooperation from UNICEP and UNDP, JCV carries out activities as a independent organization.
On November 1, 2002, JVC received the NPO status, launching a fresh start in order to continue to effectively provide vaccinations. A portion of the donations have been allocated towards the operation fee.

TTE's donation will be used primarily to purchase vaccines - 300,000 yen will vaccinate 15,000 children against polio.

You too can provide direct support!
