GG Matching Campaign

In the past year, JISP reached to over 2,828 people who were affected by the devastating earthquakes in Kumamoto last April.

JISP extends its deepest gratitude to all of the donors who made it possible; to the volunteers and specialists who participated in this program and to the people of Kumamoto.

JISP is committed to continuing its psycho-social activities in Kumamoto in 2017.

JISP initiated relief-activities in Kumamoto, Japan in April 15, 2016. After food and water distribution to over 2,000 people, the team conducted a needs-assessment in the area. The following month, the organization launched psycho-social relief activities targeting children, parents, school-teachers, and foreign residents of Kumamoto.

To read more about JISP’s work in Kumamoto:


In 2017, the Kumamoto program will focus on children suffering from post-disaster stress as well as foreign residents.

Together with its local partners, JISP clinical psychologists will provide Yoga therapy sessions for kids in elementary schools, and conduct long-term trainings on disaster preparedness and leadership for the foreign minorities who experienced tremendous trauma at the time of the disaster due to lack of social support.

But…to do that, we need your kind help.

How can you help?

Starting from April 13, at 11:00 EDT (April 14 at 00:00 JST), exactly a year after the earthquakes hit Kumamoto, Global Giving will initiate a “matching campaign”. This means that each incoming donation to the Kumamoto program will be matched by Global Giving 1-to-1 !

We need your help raising awareness and funds for the Kumamoto program.

Please donate from here!
