Promoting Character Education
Character Education Starts from Schools
Over the past twenty years, Everlight Chemical has achieved tangible results in promoting character education, not just within the company but also extending our efforts outward. We hold the Character Education Camp for children, a long-time tradition of ours, and promote character education at over ten elementary schools near our facilities as well as National Taipei University of Business, Chang Jung Christian University and Chung Hua University, with the hope to instill the importance and benefits of character education in our society. Starting from 2016, Chung Hua University has actively promoted and implemented character education to help students cultivate good character. Everlight Chemical and the Institute in Basic Life Principles have jointly sponsored the development of the “Character First” course materials, which became a required course for first-year students at Chung Hua University with the aim of cultivating positive campus culture through character education. In 2022, 243 students participated in the character education course.

Promotion of Children Education

- Everlight Chemical has been a long-time advocate for character education. Character education is promoted not only internally but also extended to schools. Good characters can benefit children throughout their lives and help build virtuous values. Through character education, children grow to become optimistic, diligent, responsible, and willing to help others. Everlight Chemical continues to organize the Character Education Camp, a long-time tradition of the Company, with the belief that good character can benefit children throughout their lives and help them establish positive values.

- Although the Character Education Camp was suspended from 2020 to 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we continued to sponsor the Life Education Morning Program at Caota Elementary School and Shulin Elementary School in the Guanyin District. The volunteers used storytelling to teach children about the different character traits and how to practice these values, aiming to equip the next generation with exemplary character.
- In 2022, a total of 788 students participated in the Life Education Morning Program (673 students from Caota Elementary School and 115 students from Shulin Elementary School). Compared to 2021, the number of participants has grown by more than 100 students.
