Rural Education for Elementary Schoolchildren
Sponsorship Program for Rural Schoolchildren
In June 2019, WNC began working with the Miaoli Chunan Family Support Center on a sponsorship plan for schoolchildren in rural areas. WNC successfully duplicated this success in a joint program with the Hsinchu Family Support Center in 2020, and Tainan Family Support Center in 2022, that focused on support for heritage education in rural primary schools. The scope of support also increased.
WNC Offers English Lessons
Leveraging its industry knowledge, WNC designed a series of basic communications and science teaching materials in 2020. These are provided to elementary schools in remote areas as supplementary materials for science and technology classes to bridge the rural-urban divide. WNC also invited Tsing Hua University student interns to participate in the WNC Classroom course planning and writing. The game-based course contents are designed for grade one through grade six to make exploring technological trends and applications more fun. WNC has also called on college students to respond to charity initiatives through the Tsing Hua University Pilot Program. The WNC Classroom, which emphasizes online and offline interaction, will launch on-site teaching in 2023. It is expected to stimulate children’s curiosity about the use of technology and communications, as well as the underlying basic science and ignite their interest in future scientific learning projects.
Assisting University Service Clubs
To encourage college students to serve as volunteers WNC provides long-term subsidies for student clubs at National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) and National Cheng Kung University (NCKU). Through its cooperation with the NTHU Indigenous Culture Club, the NTHU Science Promotion Club, the NTHU WHYOU Club, the NCKU Social Service Team, the NCKU Philanthropy Club, and the NCKU Students Service Club WNC helps college students promote after-school assistance and science education for disadvantaged children from remote areas in Taiwan.
