Currently, Silicon Connection is sponsoring 25 children from different parts of the world. Silicon Connection will sponsor a child under each employee and we had been doing this for the past 15 years. The employee could also opt to co-sponsor their child. We are ready to sponsor more children when the company expands.
Each year, we will fund 2 employees to visit their sponsored child in the child’s home country. -These trips will allow our employees to get to see their sponsored child face to face, bringing warmth and encouragement to the child. During a crisis or disasters that had a great impact, Silicon Connection will put in ad hoc effort for fund-raising to provide support to the situation.
World Vision is constantly working closely with us in our sponsorship journey to ensure the lives of our sponsored child and their community are improved. We hope that our little effort in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) would truly alleviate their situation and have a positive impact in the lives of children from less fortunate situation.
