Japanese Culture Day
As a company with Japanese capital we try to bring the culture of the cherry blossom closer to our community. In cooperation with the Manggha Centre of Japanese Art and Technology in Krakow we organize "Japanese Culture Day" for pupils from Wolbrom's primary schools. The event includes a presentation of the culture and history of Japan, an origami workshop as well as a presentation of the kimono-Japanese traditional dress. Since 2007 almost 900 participants from social institutions, schools and kindergartens in the Olkusz and Sanok counties took part in our workshops.
SumiRiko Poland Scholarship
Since 2008, our company has been granting „SumiRiko Poland Scholarship” to two of Wolbrom’s elementary schools. Our intention is to provide financial support to children who achieve outstanding results in their studies. Funds donated to the students are spent on educational aids. Until now 400 pupils from our gmina have received financial support thanks to the SumiRiko Poland Scholarship.
Safe Road to School, Road Show
In order to increase safety on the road, we conduct educational campaigns to raise awareness of safe behaviour on the road. We visit primary schools in the Wolbrom and Zagórz gminas. Children have the opportunity to listen to interesting lectures, at the end of which they receive reflectors from us. We have organised several times, in cooperation with the Centre for Road Safety Improvement Initiatives, the Road Show - an emotional, multimedia educational programme targeted at secondary school pupils, presenting a road accident from the perspective of the victim and the perpetrator. High school pupils from Wolbrom and Olkusz participated in this programme.
SumiRiko Social Energy
From the beginning of our operations in Poland we have been involved in the community life, responding to local needs. Since 2011 we have been running a volunteer grant programme Social Energy SumiRiko. This programme provides financial support to our employees for the implementation of their original projects for the benefit of the local community.
Many of the employees are already active in sports clubs and circles, parent councils, organizing sports competitions, and other projects. Thanks to this grant programme the company can support employees' initiatives in the field of education, environmental protection, health promotion, culture, and sport.
