Smile Heart Club
In cooperation with the Smile Heart Club, an NGO that distributes clothing to refugee children in unstable parts of the world, OMRON employees have knitted sweaters for children in Serbia and Montenegro and other similarly troubled areas.
Through Smile Heart Club, OMRON donated 18 winter wear sets including scarves, hats, gloves and vests for a total of 65 pieces to children in Mongolia in FY2006.
Plan Japan is a United Nations-endorsed NGO that pursues projects in developing countries across Africa and Asia in such fields as health care, sanitation, training and technology support.
In 1996, OMRON began matching employee donations to Plan Japan. Employees donate simply by using credit cards that feature a volunteer logo.
