Giving school bags to which many memories are attached, as gifts
In this activity, school bags that children have stopped using due to graduating from elementary school, are collected and donated to Afghanistan through the “Japanese Organization for International Cooperation in Family Planning (JOICFP),” and this supports the school attendance of children, especially girls with limited opportunities for education. The aim is for children to study at school and gain the ability to read and write, and thereby acquire knowledge and information regarding protecting their own health and that of their family members.
As of May 2016, Taiyo Oil has received 75 school bags and school supplies from employees, and has donated these to JOICFP.
Taiyo Oil has donated used stamps that have been collected to the “Japanese Organization for International Cooperation in Family Planning (JOICFP).” This activity involves the JOICFP selling used stamps that it has received to stamp collectors and traders, and then utilizing the proceeds for its activities for the support of women in developing countries.
