Sompo Japan Insurance helps to develop puppet play that teaches disaster awareness

Under its “Education for Disaster Reduction” programme, Sompo Japan Insurance supports non-profits in presenting a puppet show for disaster awareness.

The story told in these puppet shows is “Inamura no Hi” (The Fire of Rice Sheaves), which tells of a man who noticed the early warning signs of a tsunami and saved his village. This medium of education resonates with children and instructs them in disaster preparedness. Sompo Japan employees are also able to volunteer in the staging of the production alongside specialised puppet theatre groups.
