Since its founding, Tripod has always upheld : “And to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love” by actively participating in numerous social care work, such as the Good Friend Mission, Eden Social Welfare Foundation, 921 Earthquake Relief, orphanages, etc. and providing for the economic needs of disadvantaged groups from all walks of life. Tripod also continues to express care for the operations of various activities and groups to fulfill its social responsibility and carry forward the spirit of Christ’s sacrifice for the world!
In order for Tripod to completely and continuously help disadvantaged groups with such care for society, the Company has started planning since 2005 and officially established the “Tripod Foundation” on May 22, 2006. It is hoped that through recommendation from benevolent people and teachers, students from poverty with excellent grades and meet the foundation’s rewarding criteria can receive scholarships provided by the foundation to help this group of outstanding students in becoming future pillars of the society. In August 2012, we expanded the scope of the scholarship to Southern Taiwan to serve even more underprivileged students in need.
Since May 2014, the “Scholarship for Students from Colleges of Nursing” has been added thanks to Mr. Hsu, Tsao-Kuei’s generous donation, increasing the number of scholarship recipients, thereby benefiting more underprivileged students. To enable students in the foundation to spread the love, the “Tripod Student Volunteer Service Team” was established in 2015. Currently, the Volunteer Service Team has organized summer camps for kids, beach cleansing activity, etc. It is hoped that there will be more volunteer service actions in the future.
