MHI Group Employees Serve as Volunteers at Shiki Theatre Company's 2017 "Theater of the Heart" Performances in Amagasaki
Since fiscal 2013, in line with its CSR Action Guidelines and their commitments to "create a more harmonious society" and "inspire the future," the MHI Group has supported the Shiki Theatre Company's "Kokoro no Gekijo" (Theater of the Heart) musical productions aimed at cultivating a richness of spirit among children of the next generation from the Company's local communities. Group employees, as well as their family members, regularly assist as volunteers at the troupe's performances near their workplaces.
The participating volunteers spoke enthusiastically of the day's experience. "Speaking with members of the Shiki troupe broadened my horizons, and seeing a world different from everyday life gave me a deep sense of the significance of taking part in activities like this," said one. "I'm convinced that seeing musicals of such high quality as this from the time you're in primary school will raise the level of Japan's culture," offered the other.
The MHI Group is strongly committed to continue actively supporting children of the next generation through activities of these kinds.
