On August 21, Hitachi Elevator (China) Co., Ltd. and the Guangzhou Federation of Trade Unions jointly hosted the launch ceremony for the 2019 Golden Autumn Student Assistance Program at Hitachi Innovation World in Guangzhou Science City, with 50 children of workers resident in Guangzhou who are recipients of the assistance in attendance. Hitachi Elevator donated 200,000 yuan to the program at the event.
With the support of the Guangzhou Municipal Party Committee and the Guangzhou Municipal Government, the Guangzhou Federation of Trade Unions has been actively raising funds through the Golden Autumn Student Assistance Program, in a move to alleviate the economic burden of the families of disadvantaged workers and resolve the challenges faced by these families in terms of their children's school attendance. Since 2006, for 13 consecutive years, Hitachi Elevator has been making donations to such families resident in the city through the program. As of 2019, Hitachi Elevator has, in total, donated 2.35 million yuan, helping more than 2,000 students.
Chairman of the Trade Union at Hitachi Elevator Wu Guoxin said that the company regards education as an important part of "a win-win situation for society" and has, to the largest extent possible, leveraged its professional strengths and corporate resources to provide financial aid to teachers and students and pay attention to the healthy development of the city's teenagers, while promoting improvement in education. Going forward, Hitachi Elevator will continue to support the Golden Autumn Student Assistance Program, in a move to help more of our city's most promising teenagers complete their studies while contributing to the overall enhancement of China's educational system.
