Soccer watching for sensitive children (Japan)
Fujitsu held an event to watch the J.League (top tier soccer league of Japan) match of "Kawasaki Frontale vs Oita Trinita" for children with developmental disabilities and their families to promote "Barrier-free minds （*1）". This event was held by Fujitsu, JTB and ANA in cooperation with Kawasaki City, J.League and Kawasaki Frontale.
Children with sensory sensitivity to crowds and loud cheers, watched the game in the sensory room （*2）. On the following day, they participated in a "Soccer class" led by a coach from Kawasaki Frontale to experience the excitement of playing sports.
Fujitsu works to achieve "Barrier-free minds" by supporting the creation of children's diaries using ICT and by holding simulated experiences of children with developmental disabilities by spectators as well as being involved in the planning and management. This work was awarded gold recognition at IAUD International Design Award 2019 hosted by International Association for Universal Design.
Fujitsu will continue to promote "Barrier-free minds" through sports in cooperation with the J.League, other sports-related organizations, and local governments.

- （*1）"Barrier-free minds" means that all people with various mental and physical characteristics and ways of thinking communicate and support each other to deepen mutual understanding.
- （*2）This is a special area where children who have difficulties dealing with large crowds and loud cheers due to sensuality caused by developmental disorders, can watch the game without any concerns. This was the first case of watching a sporting event in a sensory room in Japan.
To provide every child with an education
A partnership towards helping all children attain an excellent education (India)
Over last 5 years, Fujitsu Consulting India (FCI) has been enjoying a rewarding partnership with Teach for India (TFI), a non-profit government organization that places outstanding college graduates and working professionals as full-time teachers in under-resourced government schools.
Every year, FCI sponsors TFI fellows with an aim to eliminate educational inequity in India and help the less-privileged students compete with their counterparts in private schools, by achieving the right skill set and contemporary education.
In FY2018, FCI sponsored 17 fellows (teachers) and made a direct impact on the lives of 960 children in partnership with TFI at Pune, Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad.
We will continue our support to TFI and increase the level of employee participation in social activities to help students undergo transformational change in themselves, their classroom, school and community.
A partnership towards providing education for communities (Philippine)
On its 25th anniversary, Fujitsu Philippines Global Delivery Center (GDC) entered into a partnership with Makabata School Foundation, Inc.. Makabata School Foundation, Inc. is a not-for-profit foundation located in Pasig City that focuses on providing education for communities in extreme poverty.
We regard this partnership as an important element in realizing the vision Fujitsu aspires to be as an ICT company, in line with Fujitsu's CSR framework of "Realizing a prosperous and dream-inspiring future with job satisfaction and peace of mind".
Beginning with the renovation and refurbishment of school classrooms, we then donated equipment (Routers, projector screens, projectors, LED televisions, and other library accessories) to improve the learning abilities of all students.
In 2018, as part of the Noche Buena Bonanza (Christmas event with students and faculty) initiative, Fujitsu Philippines GDC volunteer employees provided short-term education programs.
Fujitsu Philippines GDC will continue to provide educational opportunities to the children by providing continuous support to the Makabata School Foundation.
