As Bridgestone believes that everyone’s voice matters to children’s future, Bridgestone would like to be a part of an active society, helping raise public awareness as well as helping develop a better public understanding of child maltreatment in Thailand so as to cooperatively monitor and notify state officials when witnessing any incidents associated with violence against children.
