Primo Japan Inc. has joined the NPO Class for Everyone’s TASUKI PROJECT, as part of our company-wide CSR PRIMO RING PROJECT, by donating 453 old iPads that were used as tools for in-store customer service and which were being replaced. The donated devices will be used to develop ICT education mainly in areas in Asia and Africa.
With our company philosophy of “PRIMO (the best) dreams for PRIMO (supreme) happiness” at its foundation, and from our desire to help people make their dreams come true and make happiness a reality for everyone, one person at a time, we at Primo Japan launched the PRIMO RING PROJECT, our company-wide CSR initiative, in 2007, and the project has carried out various activities every year since. Since we are expanding overseas, mainly in regions throughout Asia, we have been actively supporting education in the region, and we have continued building educational facilities in each region since 2008. In this latest initiative, we decided to donate to the NPO Class for Everyone, in support of their mission “to create equal opportunities in education in developing countries”, and as an effective way to put our old equipment to use.
