[Japan] Mazda Engineering & Technology Co., Ltd. (Mazda E&T)
Reusing Equipment Where It is Most Needed
Mazda E&T engages in the development and manufacture of specially equipped vehicles, including welfare vehicles, and proactively supports the independence of people with special needs, as social welfare.
As part of such initiatives, Mazda E&T donates computers that are no longer used at the company to welfare facilities, where these computers are used for training to help people with special needs become more independent and for expanding opportunities for them to return to the workforce.
Mazda E&T donated ten computers to ten facilities, via the social welfare council of Hiroshima City, etc.
The personnel at one of the facilities that received computers said, "Previously everyone had to wait for their turn to use a computer, but with these donated computers now everything goes much more smoothly."
