While funding the education opportunities of the children’s choice, the program in 2016 formed ties with various business leaders and thus enabled the children to experience working in the diverse worksites of businesses related to their career goal.
2. H-Social Creator
H-Social Creator’ is a planning program through which college students come up with creative ideas to resolve social issues, and then give shape to their ideas.
The students chosen for the first group in 2015 and the second group in 2016 dealt with social issues, including environmental problems caused by fine dust, safety issues arising from technological development, and the effects of the aging population. Firstly, the students met with people experiencing the issues concerned, and they selected key issues based on design thinking methodology.
We hope that all the college students who took part in H-Social Creator will become creative, hands-on people who can resolve social issues based on their experience with us. We believe in an open mindset, and taking action to help the world.
