NH sustainability plans involve helping with maintenance issues in the farcicalities of the NGOs we visit. The 5 factories conduct 2 community outreaches a year, visiting local orphanages, schools and tribes as part of our sustainability plan; understanding the needs of the groups then offering assistances such as painting walls, school desks and chairs, or other maintenance support.
Regarding workers’ and community wellbeing, the company also implemented a programme called Invest for Wellness (I4WE), to establish and strengthen a vibrant and functional health system that delivers primary health care in the factory to prevent and treat high bourdon health conditions. More than that, building positive work relationships between workers and supervisors and support factories for Women’s Career Advancement for engendered workplace. The aim of the programme is to establish the system mentioned above and gradually passing the concept of healthy life style into the community.
