In 2015, WNC continues to commit itself to its five major social care programs of youth professional development, care of disadvantaged school children, assistance to charitable organizations, support of local organic farmers, and collection of disaster relief funds. Moreover, we devote financial and manpower support to assisting university service clubs, industry-university cooperative project classes, rural education development, social welfare groups, and local organic farmers.
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 the society, WNC provides long-term subsidization of student clubs in National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) and encourage employees to support them as well. In addition to cooperating with the NTHU After-School Volunteer Club, the NTHU Aboriginal Culture Club, the NTHU Science Promotion Club, the NTHU WHYOU Club, the National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) Social Service Team, and the NCKU Philanthropy Club, in 2015 WNC also included the NCKU Students Service Club into its group list for social service subsidies.
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 Hsin-chu County to develop their education on aspects of aboriginal culture, including developing their talents in Judo, archery, chorus, and dancing.
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.
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; 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 because these small-scale farmers cultivate produce on bare land full of vitality, manufacturing their own enzyme and chili water concoctions to combat pests. They cultivate organic vegetables which do not harm the land nor the human body by refraining from excessive protection and processing of their produce. All organic vegetables pass testing by third-party organizations to ensure that only the healthiest produce is supplied to WNC colleagues. WNC provides them with steady streams of income so that they can concentrate on the development of organic farming with few worries. We ensure the value and price of produce which local farmers cultivate through natural methods.
