WNC organized a series of social welfare projects and activities based on the themes of providing opportunities for education and assisting disadvantaged groups. WNC’s employees, customers, and suppliers were invited to take part.

Assisting University Service Clubs

To encourage college students to apply their knowledge to serve and care for people, take actions to participate in the volunteer service and further bring up the value of caring for society, WNC provides long-term subsidies for student clubs and cooperates with the National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) Aboriginal Culture Club, the NTHU Science Promotion Club, the NTHU WHYOU Club, the National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) Social Service Team, the NCKU Philanthropy Club, and the NCKU Students Service Club. WNC assisted the members of the aforementioned clubs to promote after-school assistance and science education for children from remote areas in Taiwan or disadvantaged groups. These clubs also offer services for socio-economically disadvantaged members of the elderly, children, and disabled people in the area of Tainan, Taiwan.

Rural Featured Education Development

WNC is concerned for disadvantaged children’s education and understands the importance of developing rural education. Starting from 2013, WNC has assisted Tunan Elementary School in rural Jianshih township in Hsinchu County to develop their education on aspects of aboriginal culture, including developing their talents in Judo, archery, chorus, and dancing. In December 2016, WNC launched the “Tunan Elementary School Development Project” and called on customers and vendors to help repair the school dormitory, cable lines in the computer classroom, and the kitchen storage. In June 2017, WNC’s social care program started providing support to Siang Bi Elementary School in Miaoli County to help the school develop archery education, which will enable traditional Atayal hunting and archery culture to be passed on to future generations and facilitate the cultivation of young archery talent.

Industry-University Cooperative Project Classes

WNC began cooperation with the Department of Business Administration of TransWorld University in September 2014, providing students with full time jobs as production-line operators. Students from economically disadvantaged families or those participating in the cooperative education programs with WNC take the precedence over other programs. WNC also assists the students by offering classes with course credits on Sundays and during off-hours from Monday to Friday.
To provide students in Hsinchu and its vicinity with work opportunities and to cultivate professional engineering talent, WNC started working with the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management at the China University of Science and Technology (CUST) in 2017 to provide courses for the department’s students. WNC provides dormitories and shuttle buses for the students, and the courses are taught by WNC employees. Students who pass the courses receive tuition subsidies, and designated teachers from CUST are stationed at the WNC dormitories to assist the students. In 2017, 21 students from the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management at CUST took courses at WNC, and it is expected that there will be 50 slots available for CUST students in 2018.

Assisting Social Welfare Groups

WNC kicked off its social care program under the name “WNC Social Care Assistance.” The company completed setup of a “WNC Social Care Assistance Platform” on its internal website with the purpose of providing a convenient channel for employees to obtain social care information, to make donations, and offer assistance on-line. Through this platform, employees can learn fund-raising information and effects of social care activities anytime. Cards and letters of appreciation from the sponsored personnel are all displayed in the reading room to help our staff feel the infinite gratefulness and gratitude that can be brought by minor virtuous deeds and encourage them to continue to engage in social care with WNC so that we can do more good things for a longer time.

Implementing the Good Food Movement

WNC selected several local farmers in the Hsinchu and Miaoli regions as suppliers. These small-scale farmers cultivate crops on fertile land and manufacture their own enzymes and chili water concoctions to combat pests. This organic cultivation is not harmful to the land or people because the produce is not overly protected or processed. The produce grown by the farmers is tested by third-party organizations to ensure that only healthy, safe produce is supplied to WNC employees. WNC provides these farmers with steady income, enabling them to focus on further developing organic farming and ensuring fair trade deals for their organic produce.
