Employee Volunteer Reports

"AKARI" Bringing Light to People Project I like books and tend to accumulate large amounts of them. I saw that this was a good chance to be of some help to society, so I donated 100 used books. I hope that with this donation, children in Asia and Africa can enjoy reading at night just as we do. I fully support the Bringing Light to People Project!
