Dahua Technology deepens its CSR initiative with “Lighting the Future”
The widely quoted motto “With great power comes great responsibility” has been held dear and put into years of practice by Dahua Technology, a leading solution provider in the global video surveillance industry. With this in mind, Dahua technology deepens its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Program “Lighting the Future”, which aims to help children who suffer from sickness or poverty in terms of education.
Caring for Kids with Autism
Dahua Technology’s “Lighting the Future” program understands that charity is not only about material donations. Sometimes it also requires very personal participation and care. Behind every child that is suffering from autism, there is usually great stress and struggle for the whole family. The pain stems not only from the financial aspects but also more importantly from the mind, the prospect of going on daily and without an easy solution. These are the children who have undergone unimaginable pain in silence and could most definitely use as much help and from as many people as possible.
On the afternoon of December 15, 2017, Dahua Technology organized a team of over 20 employees to visit the Carnation Recovery Center For Children, a facility that specializes in helping kids with autism. They brought with them, dozens of LeChange Baby Monitors, as well as many carefully picked books and toys as gifts for the children there. More importantly, the employees were prepared to devote their time, love and patience for the children. They decorated the center to evoke a mood of Christmas and listened and talked to the children while playing Christmas themed games together. Everyone had a great time and felt needed by each other. According to instructors at the center, what these kids need, are not correction, but understanding. When they are not able to adapt to our world, we should try our best to adapt to theirs’. There is still a long way to go but Dahua Technology will keep striving.
Donation to Schools for the Children of Migrant Workers
Children are our future, but not all of them have access to the proper education they deserve. For decades, China’s urbanization, while an indicator of a booming economy, has been tearing traditional rural families apart. With more and more parents becoming migrant workers, children are left behind, where, due to complicated limitations, are not able to enjoy the same educational resources as the children in the cities. Moreover, there is the problem of safety. Since no one is watching over these kids except for possibly their grandparents, these children in rural areas are often in more danger than those in urban environments.
Long Xiang Elementary School, located in the rural area of Bengbu City, Anhui Province, is a typical example of a school that is established-for-left-behind-children under harsh predicaments and very limited funding. Dahua Technology decided to reach out with a helping hand via its “Lighting the Future” program. As a leading solution provider in the global video surveillance industry, Dahua is competent and more than happy to provide Long Xiang elementary school with school supplies and security products.
In October of 2017, Dahua Technology donated to Long Xiang Elementary School, an entire set of video surveillance equipment, consisting of 103 items in total, across 20 categories. These include varies types of cameras, monitors as well as hard disks.
In May 2018, Dahua Technology further donated 42 computers and 40 monitors to the school, which could not only be used for an educational curriculum that is in synchronization with schools in big cities, but also for treasured video communication with their working parents far away. Shang Ke, the Headmaster of Long Xiang Elementary School, after receiving the equipment, expressed his profound gratitude for the long awaited systematic protection of students, and explained how the computers would make learning much more efficient.
