What started out as a fun, company-wide trip to Sapa for rest and relaxation ended up being an enormous humanitarian project aimed at improving the education and quality of life for the children living there.

On one of these company trips our Chairman, Dan On, decided to take some time to visit the local school. The school is humble and austere, the majority of the students come from underprivileged families, and they lack any modern educational tools like computers and laptops. Recognizing that children today are the leaders of tomorrow and the importance of an interactive learning environment, Dan decided to take matters into his own hands. Soon after, 8 desktop computers, 2 portable laptops, and a set of microphone and speakers for training purposes were delivered to the school, enabling them to foster modern technological skills, open up new avenues for exploration and learning, and provide them with the tools and resources to improve their education.

Besides the educational tools, Dan also delivered a massive quantity of nutritious foodstuff from our own products and our partners’. Our goal and vision is to provide nourishment for both the body and mind, to enable the children to develop strong bodies and sharp minds which can be utilized to improve their community. Alongside the foodstuff, we have also set up a service to deliver fresh milk to the children weekly to supplement their dietary needs.

As we don’t seek to do good just once and then forget about the children after we felt good about ourselves, we wish to provide them with long-term solutions that will still benefit them even after we leave. In Phase 2 we will renovate their classrooms and dormitories, provide them with better sanitation, and beautify their school in order to bring pride and love for learning. The Dan On Foundation is dedicated to social development and community work. Our mandate is to provide equal opportunity for children in rural areas. Through this foundation, we also provide sponsorship for university research, scholarship for noteworthy students, support the Deaf, Blind, and Disabled communities, and provide the local schoolchildren with gifts during the holidays. The funding comes from our own company and employees, please feel free to reach out to us for more information or donate to our Dan On Foundation.
