Initiatives for Communities and Society

Various Support Activities

Support for The Eyemate, Inc.

As part of our social contribution program, since the 40th anniversary of our founding in July 2005, we have continuously supported the guide dog training program run by The Eyemate, Inc. We positioned it as an anniversary program after carefully considering what we could do for those with physical disabilities that cannot be overcome with drugs.

Specifically, we placed a donation box at the Nichi-Iko Toyama headquarters, the Tokyo headquarters, our plants, branches, and group companies. Medical institutions that endorse the Company’s purpose have also installed donation boxes.

In addition to that, we have created opportunities to raise people’s awareness regarding the specific activities of The Eyemate, Inc., such as having its staff explain to people the challenges that come with visual impairment, and help people experience those challenges by walking with their eyes covered by an eye mask.

14-Year-Old challenge

14-year-old middle school children in Toyama prefecture are all enrolled in this educational program called "14-Year-Old challenge." The program offers work experience as well as reach-out activities outside their school for one week. The program is aimed to educate and train children to become social and disciplined. It also gives a good opportunity for youth to reconsider their own future and lives which we hope to help them make a sound psychological foundation to live healthy lives.

Nichi-Iko is one of the partner companies and hosts the program 2-3 times annually. Also, we give a lecture to 13 years old children, one year ahead of the actual program, about what are the significance of working and connection to society and people.
