In March 2011, notebooks and a card with messages from our employees were sent to him for his sixth birthday. Fund-raising for Digging WellsThrough “Fund-raising for Digging Wells”, we support the freeing of children from the harsh and laborious task of drawing water from wells. Such children have to often travel dozens of kilometers every day and do not have enough time to attend school. In total, 800,000 yen, more than last year, was raised this year by group companies in Japan between December 2010 and January 2011. All donations were given to the Japan Asian Association and Asian Friendship Society, which will contribute to the digging of three wells in India, Laos and Bangladesh.Items offered by employees for the bazaar A completed well in NepalWe continue to work towards a better society by participating in a variety of honest and ethical activities in various countries around the world.
