In an effort to fulfill their Corporate Social Responsibility program, WiseNet Asia has been supporting underprivileged children in the Chengkou mountain area of Chongqing, China through the Xiaohei and Xiaomei Public Welfare Organization since November 2015. Located in one of the poorest counties in Chongqing, this remote region is nearly 400 kilometers from the city center.
The children under the welfare program receive one-to-one funding, with monthly subsidies for food expenses ranging from RMB200 to RMB400 depending on their educational level. WiseNet Asia’s contributions include employees sponsoring one child each, as well as donating basic essentials such as warm clothing and daily necessities.
The program began with the sponsorship of a junior high school student by WiseNet Asia’s General Manager, Ms Karen Woong, in January 2011.
In May 2022, the WiseNet Asia team visited the children and their families, delivering warm clothing and encouraging them to study hard. A total of 117 children received the gifts during the visit. The purpose of the trip is to meet the needy children and their families and pass the warm clothing to them.
