Our Vision Spring project was launched through VF Asia Ltd. from 23rd April to 16th May back in 2018. The aim of this project was to make the employees aware of any problems they might have had with their eyesight. In the duration of this event, 3900 out of 4350 employees of that time had their eyesight checked and 3700 were provided with glasses with their respective eye power.
“The Change Associate” team from “Her Project” launched a project on behalf of VF Asia Ltd. that was especially beneficial for the female employees of the company. 115 women, called the Shasthyo Shokhi, were trained with six regular training sessions and six refresher training sessions who in turn trained all the other female workers in the factory.
As a result of the training, the women became aware of the treatment of different illness and diseases, while also being enlightened on how to maintain a better lifestyle. The objective of this session was to keep them strong, both mentally and physically. The most recent training that took place was on the 14th of July, 2019.
With the initiative of the Factory Welfare Department, the factory keeps sanitary napkins in stock that the female employees can buy in cases of emergency. They restock every month according to the numbers needed.
Birthdays of the children at the daycare are celebrated once every three months and all costs are jointly taken care of by the factory & factory CSR Advisor.

Occasionally, the medical team at the Filaria Hospital came to our factory and, along with our medical staff, did a check-up for any HBsAg patients in our factory, as well as to provide with medical advice or help. Even though no patients were found, regular check-ups still continue.
A Tuberculosis (TB) Test program was been carried out by the Center for Women & Children Health (CWCH) from the Nari o Shishu Hospital under the close supervision of Factory Welfare and Administration Department back in 2016. Almost 95% of employees had taken
