ASE Technology Holding has operations located all over the world and we recognize the value of peaceful co-existence and mutual prosperity with local communities. We focus our efforts towards community growth, charitable care, emergency relief and various community support programs to promote social cohesion and build a better society. We have also established robust communication platforms to facilitate meaningful interaction with the local communities in each of our global sites.

In order for the company to continue creating economic value and extend its sustainability development, we have committed to long term projects that promote community welfare. We work in tandem with the ASE Charitable Foundation and the Chang Yao Hong-Ying Social Welfare and Charity Foundation to execute these projects.

The ‘Blessed and Joyful Learning’ Holistic Health Care and Education Program

In light of an aging society, ASEH has worked with the Chang Yao Hong-Ying Social Welfare and Charity Foundation, Ming Chuan University and Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages to promote the ASE ‘Blessed and Joyful Learning’ Holistic Health Care and Education program. The program covers three major aspects - health promotion, physical-mental balance and social participation, while also incorporating elements of the humanities, science and technology and environmental sustainability, to design a series of learning activities for enhancing the physical and mental health of senior citizens. In 2020, ASE Chungli and USI Nantou conducted a session each, which served about 60 senior citizens from the local community.

ASE Happy Learning Summer Camp

To improve education in rural areas, ASEH and the Chang Yao Hong-Ying Social Welfare and Charity Foundation held a series of youth activities, and roped in the teaching resources of Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages, Ming Chuan University and International STEAM Education Association to organize a youth summer camp. Participants were able to learn from a wide variety of courses including sustainability conducted in English, news broadcast training and science innovations. These courses lead to better awareness in environmental protection and sustainability, improvement in English standards and increased interest in science. The participants included 60 students from Sinjhuang Elementary School, Jilai Elementary School and Shanlin Elementary School in the Shanlin District, Kaohsiung City.

Dragon Boat Festival Rice Dumpling Making

SPIL had been purchasing rice dumplings for the annual dragon boat festival from traditional food vendors operated by an elderly couple for six consecutive years. In 2020, a group of SPIL employees supported by the seniors at the Huashan Social Welfare Foundation, made 165 bunches of rice dumplings to distribute to underprivileged elderly people in the community. The company has donated over 6,000 rice dumplings in the last six years and supported the Huashan Social Welfare Foundation’s annual Dragon Boat Festival elderly care program by donating nearly US$ 71,000 over the years.

The Picking up Pearls Project

USI Shenzhen Plant and Kunshan Plant worked together to improve education in remote areas. A special program consisting of a ‘pearl class’ was set up at Qianshan Yezhai Middle School in Anhui province, with each plant helping 20 students (using ‘pearls’ as a metaphor for students) to complete their education. In addition, employees were actively encouraged to go online and check-in for English classes and charity-related activities. The activity has accumulated a total of 20,000,000 hearts, indicating an overwhelming level of participation. A charity family walk was also organized to promote the Picking up Pearls project. The event registered a total of 35 families comprising of 88 adults and children.
