Fulfilling the Value of Life to Spread Happiness Around
Ms. Wen-Ching Chen has been engaging in educational work in remote area. She believes that for children who need to get out of life predicaments, the most important thing besides education is to assist them in developing the concept that they should rely on their own efforts instead of passively waiting for relief. As a result, she set up the Shan-Dao Academy of Classical Learning in Gaoshu Township, which is located in the north area of Pingtung County.
Fostering the Ability of People in Remote Areas to Support Themselves
As Ms. Chen's concept of management, the Shan-Dao Academy of Classical Learning never raises funds externally. In the Shan-Dao Academy of Classical Learning, children are asked to do housework by themselves, and learn to do farm works to develop their marketable skills. Thus, children are able to support themselves and improve the finances of their families.
Two years ago, the Shan-Dao Academy of Classical Learning had the chance to cooperate with the renowned chain convenience store in terms of public welfare, in which the Academy members could sell their handmade pineapple cakes in the stores. By this opportunity, the Happiness Time set up. By implementing enterprise management system, Ms. Wen-Ching Chen expected to extend the spirit of the Shan-Dao Academy of Classical Learning in the Happiness Time, where offers sales platforms for local agricultural products with the improvements of added value and creates more employment opportunities for local people.
Challenges in Female Entrepreneurship Making Ms. Wen-Ching Chen Even Stronger
After several times of failure, Ms. Wen-Ching Chen's entrepreneurship life gradually get on the track. With
the assistance of the mechanism of entrepreneur guidance in Women Entrepreneurship Program, Ms. Wen-Ching Chen successfully obtained start-up capital to formally establish the Happiness Time, which then subsequently became one of the superior companies in the program . Ms. Wen-Ching Che hopes that through government's program, more people can be aware of the efforts put in remote areas. At the same time, she seeks for more resources and chances to help the Happiness Time increase revenue, with which to improve the situation of vulnerable groups, and further end the cycle of poverty.
Ms. Wen-Ching Che also encourages women who want to devote to entrepreneurial activities to firmly embrace their goals, and do not have to compromise their principles just in order to get better sales performance. As what Ms. Chen believes, the efforts will pay off in the end.
