In May, the NPO Kid's Door visited the NYK head office to report on the organization's activities and present a letter of appreciation offering gratitude for the support provided through NYK's volunteer point system.*
Kid's Door is an NPO that organizes student volunteers to provide educational support to economically disadvantaged children seeking a higher level of education in Japan. (Website: http://www.kidsdoor.net/english/)
During the meeting, Morihiko Hamada, Chief Content Officer at Kid's Door, handed the letter to Noriko Miyamoto, an NYK Corporate Officer. Reports from student volunteers were then presented, thus allowing NYK to obtain a thorough understanding of the significance of the company's support.
NYK will make every effort to remain a good corporate citizen and enhance its corporate value for all stakeholders by continuing the company's support of employee social contribution activities.
*NYK's volunteer point system
Points are granted for each form of contribution made by NYK Group employees. NYK tallies the points annually, converts them to a monetary amount, and makes donations totaling that amount to charities.
