Welfare and Diversity

NEC contributes to establishing a society where people accept differences (uniqueness and characteristics) and respect each other through the promotion of sports for those with disabilities and IT communication support for those with severe disabilities.

Sports for Those with Disabilities

NEC IT Communication Support Course for People with Severe Disabilities

We help people with severe disabilities, mainly those with incurable neuromuscular diseases such as ALS and muscular dystrophy, communicate using IT such as "Operate Navi" (software that supports PC operations for those with disabilities of the upper limbs).

NEC Guide-Dog Visits

NEC Guide-Dog Visits

Guide-dog educational classes are held in elementary and junior high schools throughout Japan. NEC Guide-Dog Visits are used to teach participants about guide dogs through talks given by guide-dog users, having them take part in visual impairment simulations and guide dog demonstrations, etc., and help to establish a society friendly to people with visual impairments and guide dogs.

High School Sign Language Speech Contest in Japan

High School Sign Language Speech Contest in Japan

This contest is held every year by the Asahi Shimbun Social Welfare Organization to encourage the independent activities of high school students involved in learning sign language or in sign language club activities, and to popularize sign language and promote welfare activities. NEC agrees with the goals of this contest, and has continuously given our support since the first contest (held in 1984).
