CO·OP Core Non Smile School Project donation presentation held


JCCU and member Co-ops in cooperation with the Japan Committee for UNICEF had launched a UNICEF donation campaign under the theme “CO·OP core non smile school project” to raise funds to help improve the education environment for the school children in the Republic of Angola since 2010.
One yen from the sale of each pack of CO·OP brand toilet paper “core non roll” is donated to UNICEF for the project.


The seventh phase of the project was executed from November 1, 2016 to October 31, 2017 through the home delivery catalog and the store outlets of community-based consumer co-ops nationwide.

During this one year period, approximately 11 million packs were sold yielding an amount of 11 million JPY.

On December 19, 2017, the seventh donation presentation ceremony was held at the UNICEF House in Tokyo, where the amount was presented to Mr. HAYAMI Ken, Executive Director of Japan Committee for UNICEF by ARAI Chitose and WADA Toshiaki, the Vice President and the Managing Director respectively of JCCU, to support the “children-friendly” school project for the Angola children.the-donation-to-the-project.png
