Build Your 2020 Solar City
DuPont Taiwan invited about 1,200 students of 5th and 6th grade from 10 elementary schools in Kuan Yin region (where one of DuPont Taiwan plants operates) to participate in the scientific educational design competition. Students in teams learned the benefits of solar power and how building achieves sustainability with photovoltaic panels installed. With one month preparation, each team presented their imaginary future carbon-free city for 2020 with a 60x60cm model using solar panels. Various creative ideas and concepts were generated from participating children. The program allowed students to experience sustainability in real life.
Towards ‘Zero Hunger’: DuPont Knowledge Center (DKC) Partners with Sphoorti Foundation
The DKC team at Hyderabad has collaborated with the NGO Sphoorti Foundation to support the latter’s rehabilitation center to ensure children are provided with healthy food for all meals throughout the year. The program addressed the global challenge of “feeding the world” and also allowed DuPont to have direct impact on educating children about science and other aspects of education. There are 196 children in the age group of 4 to 16 years at Sphoorti benefited from this initiative.
Several employee volunteers’ events were organized at the school to strengthen the DuPont engagement with the local community. In one such event organized last month, about 20 DKC colleagues hosted a painting competition for the students and distributed school bags and prizes to the winners. The event concluded with cultural activities performed by the kids and active participation from the volunteers.
‘Protecting Lives”: Life Skills-based Hygiene Education for Students
DuPont colleagues at the Madurai site, in partnership with Goodwill Social Work Center (GSWC), led a program to impart life skills-based hygiene to students in Therkutheru village. GSWC is an NGO that works for various social developmental initiatives including children’s rights, youth and women development and community technology services. As part of the education program, dental awareness and check-up were arranged.
‘Protecting Lives’: Creating Traffic Safety Awareness
The DuPont Community Fund team at our Savli site has partnered with Vadodara Gramya Jilla to form the Vadodara Traffic Education Trust (VTET), which helped instill safety awareness among the local citizens focusing on traffic safety to reduce incidents on rural roads. The project aimed to train 300 volunteer “Traffic Brigades” by the Police Department. They then worked under the department’s guidance to educate and regulate traffics.
‘Protecting Lives’: Improving Sanitation in Girls School
DuPont team has partnered with the Lions Club of Vandavasi to upgrade the Government Girls High School toilet infrastructure, thereby improving school sanitation and hygiene and helping reduce the spread of communicable diseases. Sanitation and hygiene are two of the most under-focused areas, especially for girls. Experts believe that poor sanitation and hygiene also result in greater incidents of malnutrition as it impacts the body’s ability to absorb the nutrition from food. Therefore this program helps not only improve the quality of life but also reduce malnutrition.
