  3. Introduction of the 2nd project
  4. Finally

1.Pen Friend Circle " We are loved.What is "?"?

This is a project where customers and RICCI EVERYDAY's Ugandan staff send messages to each other.

Due to the travel restrictions in the Corona disaster, direct connections, especially across the country, have been reduced.

For the Ugandan women who make it, the happy messages from the customers and the feedback on the products were all, and it was also a motivation for monozukuri.

"It is sometimes helpful and supportive to exchange thoughts with each other."

In order to serve as a bridge between Uganda and Japan, we planned to convey the message from the customer and receive a reply message from the Uganda workshop staff.

This project was divided into 2 times, and the 3rd installment ended on the 1st month.

We received many happy comments, and not only the Ugandan staff but also the Japanese staff felt warm.Thank you.

the message you received、InstaliveAt the workshop, I spoke with Carol, a staff member of the workshop, and shared some of her comments.

I decided to send a message over the phone due to radio waves, but I conveyed all the comments I received to the staff in Uganda after this.

I received a message of thanks from the staff, so I will introduce some of them here!


【From a Japanese customer】

the staff

I met Happy Hippo on TV.

It is "cute" at the same time as my mother💕It was something that I raised my voice.Happy Hippo did not reach my mother's hand, but seeing these children, I can smile at the memories that were fun with my mother.I am very grateful to have met these children.

Thank you for always nice work.There are more wonderful things that I do not want to say about products anymore, and my heart swells with expectation in the future.

I'm looking forward to the future.
