The OKI Group has provided financial assistance to organizations in which its employees are involved, based on the request of such employees or Corporate Philanthropy Unit of CSR Division. In one of the support projects, run by “Action with Lao Children” (a specified NPO), the task is to improve the education environment in Laos. And, in February 2015, with the support of the 100 Yen Fund, a school library room was opened in the Ponsai secondary school (2,020 students) in the Champasak province of Laos.
“Action with Lao Children” (a specified NPO)
In Laos, up to now we have opened 270 school library rooms but, in fact, there are still many secondary schools without library facilities and many teachers who have never used a library room. In conjunction with the opening of the Ponsai secondary school library room, staff from the national library held a seminar for the eight teachers who will run the library room, teaching them how to manage such a facility. From here on, we will continue to assist the school with management of the library and provide books to stock the shelves.
