Watabe Wedding Group has undertaken a variety of CSR initiatives including those related to our corporate activities as a provider of wedding services. And those that contribute directly to global cooperation and environmental issues.

Among our initiatives that comprise the latter of these two. We undertook a joint program with NPO Bridge Asia Japan (BAJ) to provide support for the construction of buildings and water wells in Myanmar starting from 2006.

Our keenest desire is to provide women and children suffering from lack of water in villages throughout the dry regions of Myanmar with a menas to lead a healthy and happy lifestyle. From that desire, we cooperated in the construction of more than 100 water wells, our next goal was construction of an elementary school.

Thanks to contributions from customers and employees, we achieved this goal in September 2010.

Building an elementary school that is available for any child who wants to sudy gives us great satisfaction for being able to bring hope and encouragement to the children of Myanmar.
