Social Contribution Activities
Health, Medical and Welfare Fields
With the aim of being a company having employees trusted by society, we hold a variety of events for our employees to give back to the community in an enjoyable setting, while fostering a greater awareness of the importance of contributing to society among our employees.
Bakery sales events for facility that employs people with disabilities
At NTT Communications Group, we periodically have events for selling the breads and confectionaries made at facilities that employ people with disabilities, and these events are timed to the Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and White Day holidays in Japan. By purchasing these delicious breads and confectionaries, employees help people with disabilities lead more independent lifestyles, while also fostering a greater awareness of social welfare.
We have implemented this initiative since 2003. Starting in 2015, we have held bakery sales events at a facility in Chiyoda Ward that employs people with disabilities. The bread is so delicious that it sells out every time, so we now hold sales events at Group companies on occasion.
Donations of old books
At Department of Applications and Content, employees bring their used books to work for donating to 3Keys, the non-profit organization. The donated books are converted into cash by the NPO, which is used to support the education of children living in foster homes and orphanages.
This event has been held every year since 2014. Around 270 books have been donated so far, raising approximately ¥15,000. In fiscal 2016, the third year, March was designated as the month for employees to bring their used books to work for donations.
We will continue helping improve the educational environments of children who live in orphanages.
A puppy character designed by an employee as the mascot has been used in informative posters since the first event, raising awareness of foster homes.
Donations of calendars
At NTT Communications Group, unused calendars and notebooks from our business offices are donated to Community Support Center Kobe, a certified non-profit organization. The donated calendars are mainly distributed by the NPO to senior citizens and people with disabilities through disaster relocation housing, local governments, regional organization and other NPOs.
