Library Project

Sika China is cooperating with "Library Project", a non-profit charity organization. Fulfilling social responsibilities and supporting basic education, the Library Project of Sika China has been in operation for four years since 2015.

In the four years, the Little Yellow Helper volunteer team of Sika has been to the remote areas in Chongqing, Sichuan, Hebei, Shaanxi, Shanxi, Jiangxi and other provinces, creating reading rooms and corners in 73 elementary schools, donating more than 67,000 books and providing more comfortable and safer learning environments for more than 17,300 students.

In addition to the book bought through the Library Project organization, Sika China also calls on its staff and partners to donate new or second-hand books by setting up donation sites and organizing "Book Donation Days". A Sika volunteer team was set up to take part in various charity activities. Some volunteers stayed on the reading room refurbishment site even during the National Day holiday; some volunteers came to the schools to set book shelves, sort books and carry out donation ceremonies.

As one of the volunteers of the Library Project, Swiss employee Deborah Buerge was warmly welcomed by the children. “They encircled me right away. I was deeply impressed by their passion and thirst for knowledge.” “It’s a very meaningful activity. I will get involved if I get the chance again in the future,” said Deborah about the activity.
