About AIM Project
AIM Project is a student-run-organization within Keio University in Japan which focuses on producing an educational and academic trip for Indonesian students to visit Japan and spend 10 days with Japanese students for a deeper understanding of mutual relations. This program mainly consists of academic activities such as discussions with Japanese Students of Keio University and business experts. This program also give delegates experience of Indonesian and Japanese culture.
The student-run-organization is called Institute of International Relations (IIR). IIR motto is producing students who can play a role in the international society. In 1956, IIR was launched on the occasion of a letter from Stanford University. Nowadays, IIR are officially supported by Keio University and IIR create opportunities to improve international friendship and mutual undertanding for student not only in IIR but also everyone in the Keio University.
One of the many extraordinary memories AIM Project share from last year program is when the Indonesians and the Japanese students made each other their country’s traditional food. Indonesian students made the Japanese “Nasi Goreng” and the Japanese made the Indonesians Takoyaki in return.
AIM Project is an amazing way to experience, share, and learn about Indonesia and Japanese culture between youths. Hope this program will strengthen Indonesian and Japanese students relationship, furthermore could be a way to initiate collaboration between youths.
