To set up a foundation is the goal that 3&3 has been pursuing from the beginning, not only to implement the philosophy of “Take from the society / Give back to the society”, but also in light of these three background ideas:
I have been supported and given encouragement by so many people since my childhood; therefore, to develop the love of others is my biggest wish inside my heart. When I was in college, I devoted myself to helping the poor in the orphanages, rural areas, and social welfare centers, in the hope that with my help, more kids will be empowered to get over the difficulties from the environment, to be able to live with love and courage, and one day they will dedicate themselves to the world.
When I established my corporation in 1988, "Social Welfare" is one of the most important items of my business goal. In addition to helping children with special needs, the corporation also supports many public interest groups and institutions, to emphasize how much we value lives.
We've been gaining experience in promoting social welfare and life education for decades and the development of cross-strait business is more stabilized. It is time for us to incorporate more resources and participation, to conduct more systematic and professional work in life education.
Base on the ideas above and also with the whole-hearted support from my wife, Grace Ko, my two lovely daughters, and help of so many experts in their own fields, the foundation has now been born with the preparation of colleagues. I am very thankful for all the efforts, hoping that with more people joining us, we will be able to accompany all children with love and care.
