Clothes for Smiles
UNIQLO has launched Clothes for Smiles, a project developed in collaboration with professional tennis player and UNIQLO Global Brand Ambassador Novak Djokovic in fall 2012. Through this project, we will establish a fund of one billion yen and use it to bring hope to kids all over the world, nuturing their dreams and giving them the tools to build a better, brighter future.
UNIQLO Recovery Assistance Project
Post-Disaster Recovery Assistance and the Power of Clothing
UNIQLO began offering support in the immediate wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake. We started by thinking about public expectations of the company and what we could do to help. We eventually came to the conclusion that our customers throughout Japan were counting on us. So we set up the UNIQLO Recovery Assistance Project to continue to offer support to people in the parts of the country that were affected by the disaster.

Employees with disabilities
We have set a goal of hiring at least one disabled person at each store
Since 2001, UNIQLO has been working to employ one person with a disability at every store. Currently, nearly 90% of our stores have met this target. Employing people with disabilities has the additional benefit of enhancing staff communication, thoughtfulness and customer service as well.
