Financial literacy education regarding credit cards

Since 2020, we have been conducting financial literacy classes for 5th-grade students at Fujimino City Tsurugaoka Elementary in Saitama Prefecture, teaching the importance of "credit" and "personal information" and providing a basic understanding about credit cards. The classes aim to cultivate financial literacy skills, such as wealth management and payment planning, to prepare students for future credit card usage.

Orico to Continue Sponsorship of "Theater of the Heart" in 2023

We are pleased to sponsor "Theatre of the Heart", an invitational performance project for children organized by Shiki Theatre Company and the General Incorporated Foundation of Center for Performing Arts, and supported by the Agency of Cultural Affairs. Through family musicals produced by Shiki Theatre Company, this project aims to instill in children the importance of values such as "the sanctity of life", "compassion for others", and "the joy of believing in each other". Since its inception in 2008, the project has touched the hearts of around 500,000 six-graders nationwide, ranging from Hokkaido to Okinawa. In support of this activity, we are sponsoring " Theatre of the Heart " in 2023 as we did in 2022.

In 2023, there will be three productions: " The Cat Who Wished to Be a Man ", "The Dream of John Manjiro" and "The Prayer of Elcos". In the Kanto Bloc, where we are a co-sponsor, it is planned to bring Theatre of the Heart to around 170,000 children in 32 cities.*Figures are actual results for 2022
