3.Participation in the Kumamoto Reconstruction Assistance Event (Shindengen Kumamoto Techno-Research)

Two years have passed since the Kumamoto earthquake occurred, but more than 40,000 people still live in temporary housing. The Shindengen Group has raised contributions from employees and donated them to the stricken area.
The necessary support for the affected people seems to be changing from material support to psychological support. In the afflicted areas, various volunteer organizations hold events, exchange meetings, and provide reconstruction assistance for the residents. On 21st March, community volunteer groups invited residents living in temporary housing to events such as a mini concert, food bazaar, and dock therapy experience group. By renting the venues of sports facilities in Mifune-machi, the “Mifune-machi resident exchange meeting” has been held. At Shindengen Kumamoto Techno-Research, employees belonging to volunteer groups are actively participating in the planning, preparation, activities, etc. of reconstruction support activities with all their family.

7.Acceptance of overseas training (Lamphun Shindengen)

Lamphun Shindengen welcomed the 13 students from Aomori Gakuin University on January 23, as a response to the request from the University. The students’ overseas activities and learning became a corporate visit as part of “overseas training where employees can learn about different cultures, expand the international perspective, and learn the realities of management while exploring issues.”On that day, the students took a business introduction and factory tour of Lamphun Shindengen. It was a very meaningful day for exchanging opinions with students. In Shindengen, we are focusing on supporting global careers, even in the training of human resources, so if we have a request from educational institutions in the future, we will actively consider putting programs in place.
