Services to Nursery Homes

Winbond's Silence Association selects a nursery home in the neighborhood as the target for long-term aiding service. During weekends or holidays, members of the association engage in services such as cleaning, collecting/donating invoices, and providing funds for replacement of damaged facilities. So far, the Silence Associationhas provided 96 person/times and 192 hours of service to the nursery home, which not only helped solve the difficiulty of shortage of manpower in the nursery home but also reduced their costs and expenses.

Christmas Dream Fulfillment Project

According to statistics from the Eden Foundation, there are 180,000 students from remote or povertystricken areas in Taiwan. Recognizing the need of these students, Winbond, the Taiwan Fund for Children and Families, and Action Cultural & Educational Foundation, along with 20 companies in the HsinchuScience Park, launched a "Love Relay in Hsinchu Science Park" to fulfill the Christmas wishes of the school children in rural areas and the disabled. The activity has been held for 14 years. Up to 2016, a total of 2,875 Christmas gifts were collected and distributed to the underprivileged children in 2016.

This project receives enthusiastic responses every year. All gift donations are pledged shortly after
the beginning of the event. Up to 2016, a total of 890 underprivileged children have had their Christmas
wishes fulfilled. It is obvious that Winbond's commitment to public welfare has been deeply rooted in the
employees' minds.
Additionally, Winbond also organizes a family day, and we also invite underprivileged children
to enjoy various activities, performances, and meals. We look forward to helping more underprivileged
children in need to go back to school.

Breakfast Program for Students in the Remote Rural Areas

Starting from 2011, Winbond has launched a breakfast supply program for school children in remote rural
areas. The program was first initiated by Winbond's senior managers. Donators voluntarily pledge for their
donation of breakfast packages, which are delivered to primary school students in rural areas of Hsinchu and
Taichung regions through the assistance of non-profit organizations. We hope to maintain the basic needs for children's living and health by providing rural schools with breakfast resources and care to help children build a strong body and mind to explore the world. In 2016, Winbond sponsored nearly one million NT dollars in breakfast funding, helping students to learn while taking care of their health. Winbond also conducts on-site evaluation to understand the benefits of the service plan for the follow-up sponsorship of this program.

Movie Appreciation for Children in the Nursery Homes

Since 2010, Winbond has invited the children in the nursery homes to watch movies in the cinema both insummer and winter vacations and hope that such experience would allow the orphans or single-parent children tofeel of warmth from the society, while learning to appreciate the artistic values conveyed in the form of movies.

 

 

Family-Day

Nursery children to take part in Family Day

For six consecutive years from 2011 to 2016, Winbond has been holding Family Day every year, and Winbond invited the Taichung Guang-Yin Nursery and Hsinchu St. Francis Nursery to set a booth in the venue. Our employees use this opportunity to express their love and care to the nursery children by spending some money buying stuff at the booth. Income from the sales in the event goes directly to the nurseries. Up to the end of 2016, Winbond has invited 575 children from the nursery homes to the Family Day event.


 

Public-lectures

Public lectures

Winbond sponsors, Miss Shin-Ling Shen, a young activist of public welfare, for her lecture tours entitled
"LOVE, Happy, and LOHAS Lifestyle" delivered to campuses and social welfare institutions. Her lectures aim to inspire children on how to "fish," and on how to create more opportunities for themselves by transforming the existing conditions to their own advantage. The lectures are designed to spread the charity of knowledge, which is encapsulated in one word or one concept, in order to bring the children a lifetime change by planting seedlings of hope into children's heart.
As of the end of 2016, Winbond organized a total of 32 sessions of lectures, with a total of 11,155
teachers and students feeling the power of the "one" by Miss Shin-Ling Shen. The content is like planting
seedlings of hope into the teachers and students' heart, which not only makes children more grateful, willing to give and tolerant of frustration, but also reminds the teachers of the teaching enthusiasm. Miss Shin-Ling Shen's"thinking from a different perspective" further stimulates the children and the teacher's infinite creativity to make them care about the family, classmates, friends, the community and hometown with specific actions.
The sponsoring amount for the lectures helps Miss Shin-Ling Shen to be committed to sustainability
programs such as Taiwan Hope Engineering and Anan Free Education Website. More and more children benefit from "The Charity of Knowledge", and it starts the cycle of love, achieving plural charities.
