Public service starts in our daily lives, and through more frequent interactions and exchanges with the local community, the Group is able to gradually become part of that community. Today, the Group conducts activities in the neighborhoods around its operating locations, sponsoring neighborhood festival events, community cleanups, blood pressure checks and health examinations. We also work with local police to provide support for events like the opening and closing ceremonies of the Universiade, for which we rented out facilities for officers to rest and coordinate.
The Yuanta Cultural and Educational Foundation has held "Yuanta Happy Day" events since 2012. Due to the enthusiastic response from charitable organizations and volunteers, from 2015 onwards, the scope was expanded to offer three annual Happy Day activities in Northern, Central, and Southern Taiwan, to make sure that kids from across Taiwan were able to take part. Over the past six years, more than 3,100 students have participated in Yuanta Happy Days.
In 2017, three Yuanta Happy Day events were held at the National Taiwan Science Education Center in Taipei, the National Science and Technology Museum in Kaohsiung, and Asia University in Taichung. 29 public welfare organizations and schools and 657 children were invited to participate. A total of 300 employees and their families were involved as volunteers, to accompany the children for a memorable "Yuanta Happy Day", and to let them experience the joy of giving.
Since 2014, the Yuanta Cultural and Educational Foundation has sponsored the Mandarin Daily News project to send newspapers to schools in rural communities for free. In 2017, the “Send Word to the Mountains” project sent newspapers to 18 elementary schools and 485 children in the Hualien-Taitung region.
The Yuanta Cultural and Educational Foundation also uses its role as a public welfare platform to collaborate with other enterprises and public welfare organizations to integrate multi-party resources. At present, the Kids’ Bookhouse has set up a total of 9 Bookhouses in Taitung, providing a diverse range of tutoring services for more than 300 students.
