GREATER CHINA: GREATER IMPACT

Jan 18, 2013

We saw tremendous growth in the impact of programs helping children in Greater China, including Taiwan and Hong Kong.

The Amway Charity Foundation ramped up its support of nutrition programs to help children in rural areas, where parents have moved to the big cities to find work. The Foundation reached a milestone of 700 kitchens renovated through the Spring Sprout program, and was recognized by the Chinese government for these accomplishments.

In urban communities, Amway continued to support educational programs for migrant children in the big cities, where kids don’t always get the same services as their peers. Amway now supports libraries and mentoring programs in 35 cities across China through Project Sunshine.

We even had a chance to visit a couple of these programs and visit some of the top Amway distributors in China, who are actively supporting initiatives for migrant children, giving their time and resources to help.

In Taiwan, Amway launched the Amway Hope Maker Charity Foundation to formalize their longtime support of people with disabilities, and education and nutrition programs for children in remote areas of the country. The Foundation launched nutrition program in 62 primary schools this year.

And in Hong Kong, students took to the roof to increase their exposure to organic gardening. The Amway Organic Farming Program came to 18 primary school districts in Hong Kong. Amway distributors led by example as well, with more than 400 pledging to become volunteer Green Organic Ambassadors and work alongside junior famers as they tend their school-based organic farms.

From the mainland to the islands, Amway is working alongside distributors, employees, and many partners in Greater China to transform the lives of children.
