Ongoing Support for the WFP School Meal Program
Certificate of Partnership for
the WFP Corporate Programme
As a corporate partner, Kaneka provided support to the World Food Programme (WFP) for three years from 2013 to 2015. We donated part of our African sales of the synthetic fiber product, Kanekalon, to the WFP school meal program. We have provided lunch to about 700,000 elementary school children for three years. In areas where the elementary school dropout rates are high, we also provided rice and vegetable oil to girls whose families lack food. We were also the corporate sponsor for the 2015 WFP Essay Contest.
We will continue to be a corporate partner of the WFP for three more years from 2016 until 2018.
