As part of our social contribution activities, we are actively engaged in activities to provide financial support through NGOs / NPOs around the world by using part of the proceeds from our business activities.
Specifically, we are engaged in activities such as financial support activities, event planning and staff exchange, and fundraising plan implementation, mainly in the fields of education, medical care, and poverty alleviation for children who will lead the next generation. We are promoting activities in tie-up with 7 organizations from 3 countries, Singapore, Australia, and Japan.

It is an organization that aims to create a place where "family", "life", and "happiness" can be nurtured together in society based on lasting exchanges between children suffering from life-threatening illness and their families.
Together with children with life-threatening illness and their families, we plan and carry out dozens of family trips yearly, called wish vacations, and provide opportunities for social interaction with families to give vitality and courage toward the future.
