Supporting local schools
In addition to donating scooters and motorcycles and providing technical guidance to schools and kindergartens, the Yamaha Motor Group also helps to solve issues directly faced by nurseries, schools, and foster care homes for children near its companies.
One of these projects was undertaken by TYM*1 in Thailand to make bricks for the construction of a library at Wat-Sammakan school. Around 100 employees and Yamaha Club members worked together to mix the clay, shape the bricks, and dry them in the sun.
Also in Thailand, 60 employees of YPMT*2 went to Watsrihalothai school in Chonburi Province, which had been damaged by floods in September 2014, to repair and paint fences and gates.
In Argentina, YMARG*3 donated school items to a foster care home for children, and each year the Company visits a foster care home to make repairs to the facilities and visit with the children.
