Social Contributions Activities in China

Creating a Better Educational Environment in Cooperation with a School

Improving the skills of students as well as providing them with the opportunity to understand the meaning of working in society

Brother Machinery Xian Co., Ltd. (BMX) has been supporting a vocational school in a rural community in the suburb of Xian since 2008. In the five years from 2008 to 2013, BMX had donated industrial sewing machines and repair parts once a year and aided superior students with a scholarship fund.

In 2014, BMX launched a new collaborative program with Xi'an Polytechnic University (XPU) in Xian City, where students study spinning and apparel. The Research Center of Clothing Engineering and Technology, a facility of XPU, has been using the sewing machines donated by Brother for the research and experiment of sewing and the study of sewing equipment. BMX also provides the students with sewing skill education and carries out a factory tour so that they could improve their skills and understand the meaning of working in society by putting skills and knowledge learned at school to practice.

In China, the China Association of Enterprises with Foreign Investment, an extra-government organization of the China's Ministry of Commerce, gives an award called Best CSR Practices of Foreign-Invested Enterprises in China with the purpose of fostering CSR activities of enterprises.

BMX was awarded with the 2015 Best CSR Practices of Foreign-Invested Enterprises in China, as a great partner for local communities. The following achievements were evaluated as ideal corporate collaboration and support programs: making use of their products and resources to challenge social issues such as improvement of the skills of young people in rural communities and the shortage of job and educational equipment for students; and having enough dialogue with XPU especially to consider specific supporting programs with a policy to offer appropriate aid by understanding the needs of educational sites.
