NYK Sponsors Facilities for Project Hope School in China
NYK Line (China) Co., Ltd. has donated 30 bunk beds and some sports supplies to NYK Wangping Middle School, which is located in the rural area of Luoyang in Henan province.
On October 21, Yuji Isoda, a corporate officer at NYK and the company’s chief representative for China, visited the school with officers from the Luoyang municipal government and education bureau to attend a ceremony in recognition of the event. The school and the government expressed their sincere gratitude to the NYK Group for its 14 consecutive years of support.
Through Project Hope,* the NYK Group sponsored the construction of two schools, NYK Wangping Middle School in 2001 and NYK Xuncun No. 1 Middle School in 2004. The NYK Group has also provided classroom desks and chairs for the students, and this recent donation of beds is expected to improve the living conditions in the school’s dormitory. Further, the new sports supplies are expected to enrich the campus life.
Supporting education within local communities and areas that face special challenges is an important part of the NYK Group’s continuing corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities.
Founded in 1989, Project Hope is a Chinese public benefit project organized by the China Youth Development Foundation. The project aims to improve educational facilities and support the education of children in poorer rural areas of China.
