The TORAY and JWF have been developing a joint project aimed at the resolution of water problems, especially supply safe drinking water and promote understanding about sanitation from 2010.

Since 2011, Toray Industries, Inc. and JWF have been involved in a joint project for improving water and sanitary conditions at elementary schools in Lombok, Indonesia. This is one of Toray’s CSR activities aimed at contributing to the creation of a sustainable society.

In 2015, the fifth year of the project, we compiled an outcome document detailing the first four years of activities and presented it to local governments, hoping that it would be useful for the management of elementary schools in the target area. The details are described bellow.

Details of the project in the past four years
1) Project site
West Lombok Regency, Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara Province, Indonesia


2) Beneficiaries
School children and teachers, about 3,364 people
List of schools: SDN 1 Kedaro, SDN 4 Kadaro, SDN 3 Kedaro, SDN Gili Asahan, SDN Gili Gede, SDN 1 Batu Putih, SDN 2 Batu Putih, SDN 3 Batu Putih, SDN 4 Batu Putih, SDN 5 Batu Putih, SDN 1 Pelangan and SDN 6 Pelangan

3) Output
Awareness raising on water and sanitation & building facilities

  • Installation of rainwater harvesting tanks: 26 tanks
  • Building & renovating toilets: 9 toilets
  • Awareness raising activities & training sessions: 27 times

4) Impact
Construction of facilities for supplying clean water and sanitary toilets promoted hand-washing and the elimination of open defecation. Through awareness-raising activities and training, children have learnt about the relationship between water and sanitation, and water and education. As a result, they have become familiar with healthy behavior and put it into practice. As for the maintenance of the facilities, we encouraged them to create a self-management system. Now the children have begun to take turns cleaning the toilets.

Therefore, the Head of Education and Culture of West Lombok Regency has promised to give active support. Though this project was completed in 2015, activities for improving water and sanitary conditions in elementary schools continue under the auspices of the Education and Culture Department.
