Every year, for the past 16 years, a portion of the proceeds from the ECCT’s Europe Day Dinner have been donated to the Syin-Lu Foundation. At this event hosted by the ECCT Board of Directors’ working group on CSR, our guest speaker will give an introduction to the Syin-Lu Foundation and its main programmes and activities to show how the ECCT’s donations have been put to good use.
 
Established in 1987, the Syin-Lu Foundation is a non-profit organization that promotes empowerment and economic self-sufficiency for people with disabilities and their families in Taiwan. The foundation provides support mainly to people with intellectual disabilities including developmental delay, intellectual disability, Down’s syndrome, autism and cerebral palsy.
 
Through a variety of projects and a network of 30 branches located in Taipei, Taoyuan, Hsinchu and Kaohsiung, Yilan and Penghu, the foundation provides a range of services for people of all ages. Every year, the Syin-Lu Foundation provides comprehensive care and employment assistance for more than 5,000 people who are mentally and physically challenged. This includes early intervention and psychological treatment for children and community living support for adults aimed at strengthening communities to welcome and include people with disabilities. The foundation helps youths with disabilities develop work skills through vocational assessment, pre-work and on-the-job training, job matching and employment advocacy. It also runs a sheltered workshop. For the elderly with intellectual disabilities, the foundation’s aged care service includes accommodation support, a community-based resource network to fulfill health and aging-related needs and home delivery services.
