In its commitment to enriching people’s lives, employees of Nissan in Philippines participated in an outreach activity in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Philippines.

For the past seven years, Nissan has helped more than 3,300 families through the partnership, with Nissan in Philippines employees, contributing more than 316 volunteer hours. The latest in a seven-year partnership involved helping the local residents by painting the houses of Habitat for Humanity’s partner community in Tanza, Navotas.

Forty employees, led by Nissan in Philippines’ president and managing director Atsushi Najima, volunteered to complete the painting of a total of five houses.

“Our volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity Philippines is an extension of our company’s vision by moving people to a safe, sustainable, and inclusive world. We aim to enrich the lives of Filipino people as a natural part of our operations, and through community service,” Najima said.

Nissan’s partnership with Habitat for Humanity started in 2012 with the disaster response and shelter repairs in the wake of Typhoon Pablo (International code: Bopha). The partnership continued to include projects such as employee volunteer programs, disaster risk reduction and mitigation projects, and youth leadership training. Nissan also donated a total of four vehicles Nissan X-Trail, Nissan Urvan, and two Nissan Navara, as part of the disaster response objectives.
