Local High school and Junior High School Students Receive Laboratory Training on a Factory Floor

In May 2009 students of Iwadeyama Junior High School experienced on-site training for two days on the floor at Nitto Denko Medical MFG Co. Ltd. In addition, in November students of Miyagi Iwadeyama Senior High School came to also experience on-site training. Though the students were bewildered by this experience, they dealt with the packing and labeling tasks that they were assigned with care. A tribute to the success of the experience came by way of a thank you letter received from a senior high school student who was involved who expressed her thanks for the good lessons that she learnt.

Donation of Picture Books to Municipal Schools in Thailand

There are many children residing in the mountainous areas of Thailand who want to go to school but are unable. "Kodomonity" is a not for profit organization which offers opportunities and places for education to such children and sells picture books as part of their drive. In July 2009 Nitto Denko Material (Thailand) Co. Ltd. bought 4,000 picture books from "Kodomonity" and donated them to 50 municipal schools in Ayuthea. The picture books were of Japanese folk stories, each one being translated into Thai. We hope that such disadvantaged children in the future will be able to attend school. In the meantime we hope that these picture books provide children with an opportunity to learn about Japanese culture and to develop a feeling of kinship with Japan.

Backup of Scholarship System in Turkey

Nitto Europe engages in social action programs through adopting the suggestions of employees. In 2009 we made a donation of 2,000 euros (approximately 260,000 yen) to an organization named "Cagdas Yasami Destekleme Dernegi" in Turkey. This organization was nominated by one of our employees at Nitto Denko Turkey. The organization supports progress in Turkey by giving scholarships to young people, especially girls, to help assist them in finishing basic schooling and even to begin university. One of the students that they assisted ended up graduating from college with a scholarship as an intern to the United Nations. Nitto Europe chose to support this organization's good work as a way of promoting greater education opportunities for more young people.
