Cushman & Wakefield donates books to children across Asia Pacific




Cushman & Wakefield (NYSE: CWK) announced today that its Tokyo team has joined with other offices across Asia Pacific to partner with The Asia Foundation and donate books to children across the Asia Pacific region. In March 2020, as part of celebrating the International Women's Day, Cushman & Wakefield partnered with The Asia Foundation, encouraging employees to purchase and donate their favorite English language children's books. Although the project was initially on-hold due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the resumption of international deliveries has meant the successful completion of the campaign. In partnership with The Asia Foundation, the books will be delivered to communities where they are needed the most to support children in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam.

The theme for 2020 International Women's Day was “each for equal”. There are gender significant disparities in education and literacy across the world, with women accounting for over two thirds of the global illiterate population. The education is a key part of women's empowerment and for achieving social and economic equality. Through its partnership with The Asia Foundation, Cushman & Wakefield aims to help girls build a brighter future throughout the vast and varied Asia Pacific region.

Yuko Okayasu, Head of Marketing & Communications at Cushman & Wakefield Japan, stated: “Data shows that amongst 31 million girls in elementary school age in the world, approximately 17 million are not attending the school. The difference in literacy rates that result from not being able to attend the school is contributing to the gender inequality. Despite the fact that men and women cannot live without each other, significant gender disparities are still a social problem. We should act in order to form a society where employment and wage gender gap is filled and where everyone is given a fair share of opportunity."
