Ongoing Support for the WFP School Meal Program
As a corporate partner, Kaneka has provided support to the World Food Programme (WFP) since 2013.
We donated part of our African sales of the synthetic fiber product, Kanekalon, to the WFP school meal program. We have offered lunches to elementary school children and also provided rice and vegetable oil to girls whose families lack food in areas where the dropout rates of elementary school girls are high.
And we continue the corporate sponsor for the 2016 WFP Essay Contest.
In May 2016, the Japan Association for the UN WFP held a charity event, "Walk the World," for the first time in the Kansai region. Kaneka and Kaneka Sunspice sponsored the Osaka venue, where 1,263 participants, including elementary students, learned about the activities and the importance of the WFP.
