UNESCO’s World Terakoya Movement: Kakisonji-hagaki Project

The UNESCO World Terakoya Movement has been sponsored since 1989 by the National Federation of UNESCO Associations of Japan. The movement provides venues where children and illiterate adults, who are unable to attend school, can learn to read and write.
Recognizing that literacy is key to communication, the DENTSU SOKEN Group supports the movement and, together with 29 Dentsu Group companies, supports the Kakisonji-hagaki Project, which collects unused postcards, stamps, prepaid cards, and other items and converts them into donations in order to obtain funds for the support activities.

TABLE FOR TWO Initiatives

The DENTSU SOKEN Group endorses the TABLE FOR TWO Program designed to eliminate global hunger and reduce health issues related to unhealthy eating. Since October 2010, the employee cafeteria* at the DENTSU SOKEN Head Office had been providing healthy, nutritionally balanced menus to help improve lifestyle-related diseases.
In April 2012, we installed beverage vending machines at the DENTSU SOKEN Head Office as part of the TABLE FOR TWO Program. Part of the proceeds are donated for the purchase of school lunches for children in developing countries.
DENTSU SOKEN will continue to engage in social contribution through food, while promoting these activities to encourage more employees to participate.

*The cafeteria has been closed since the summer of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

World Food Programme (WFP)

The United Nations’ food aid agency, the WPF, is the world’s largest humanitarian aid organization.

DENTSU SOKEN serves as a WFP point of contact for Japan’s private sector and supports the program’s activities by participating in a council set up by the Japan Association for the World Food Programme, an NPO responsible for financial cooperation and public relations efforts.

Support JPPF Activities

Natural Disaster Emergency Support

DENTSU SOKEN helps raise funds through a variety of aid groups in order to support people who have been affected by natural disasters.

Donating Disaster Stockpiled Food to Food Banks

We stockpile emergency food for employees and those who may have difficulty returning home in the event of a disaster. As part of our sustainable initiatives, we have donated approximately 10,000 meals of emergency food, which were nearing their expiration date, to food banks, social welfare councils, and children’s cafeterias nationwide through the ‘Stockpiled Food Utilization System JEFO Donation Matching’ operated by the Public Interest Incorporated Association Japan Emergency Food Promotion Organization (JEFO).


PET Bottle Cap Collection Campaign

In July 2009, the DENTSU SOKEN Head Office launched an annual PET bottle cap collection campaign. Volunteers collect and recycle used PET bottle caps, which are sold to recycling enterprises, thereby providing the money for poor children in Third World countries to receive vaccines.

The bottle caps are collected at Head Office and the vaccines are purchased and provided through the NPO Cap Savings Box Promotion Network and the NPO that goes by the name of Japan Committee, Vaccines for the World’s Children.

It is said that if 400 caps are incinerated, rather than recycled, they generate 3,150g of CO2. This initiative thus contributes to society by reducing CO2 emissions.

Cleanup Activities

In Tokyo’s Minato Ward, where the DENTSU SOKEN Head Office is located, we take part in cleaning activities each spring and fall, together with other nearby companies. This not only helps protect the environment, but also helps the community by removing litter, such as empty cans and bottles, as well as cigarette butts, that passers-by drop on the sidewalk.
