In 2018, we won the excellent group of the "Sixth National Environmental Education Awards"
In 2017, we won the extraordinary excellent group of the "Sixth Taipei City Environmental Education Awards"
The affirmation and support for the contribution given by the volunteer workers of the Foundation in the environmental education over the years have enabled more people to see and approve of every family caregivers and citizen, young and old, who is willing to practice environmental protection in their lives.
In 2013, we won the excellent group of the “Second Taipei City Environmental Education Awards” for the "Green Food Education Action" of the Foundation launched in recent years. The managing director, Chen, Yu-chi, was invited to represent the Foundation to receive this award on October 29.
In 2012, the <green picture book – The Tree of Hope> won the Creative Group for the Green Public Welfare Action of the Fourth Xue Xue Awards
We used "green picture books" with the connotation of eco-environmental protection to carry out environmental education. Over the past year, we had selected picture books, developed teaching plans, tried out teaching plans, organized training courses, toured on storytelling trains, shared in the research and study of teaching plans, and organized camp activities. From all those we have done, we had seen the diversity and possibility of the output of green picture books, as well as the charm and magic of themselves. We have thus firmly believed that this is the green hope project that is worth being and must be carried forward.
In 2011, the “Taiwan Non-GMO Agricultural Areas Movement" won the [Influential Group for Green Public Welfare Action Awards-] of the Third Xue Xue Awards.
GMO technology uses biotechnology to transfer genes across species to make crops resistant to pesticides or pests and diseases, thereby increasing yield and growth rate. The multinational enterprises that conduct GMO R&D monopolize the trade of seeds with technological advantages and means of patents, which seriously harms the regional and diversified agricultural development. In Taiwan, the Homemakers United Foundation, the Homemakers Union Consumers Co-op, the Green Formosa Front, and the Seed Laboratory, Department of Agronomy of the National Taiwan University launched the “Non-GMO Agricultural Areas” movement in Taiwan in 2008 to promote more than 60% of Taiwan’s agricultural land to be GMO-free agricultural areas. This movement combined resources from all walks of life and the promotion of citizen education, striving to arouse the power of food awakening through grassroots action by the public.
In 2007, a female landmark was set at the crossroad where the Taipei Headquarters was located.
The Homemakers United Foundation is the only female-led environmental protection group in Taiwan. It has long adhered to the principle that directors and supervisors must be women. The landmark designed by the teacher, Lian, Bao-chai, with the concept of "Mother of the Earth", symbolizes the HUF, caring for the most important environmental issues of the earth, and emphasizing the combination of action and life.
In 2007, we won the Phoenix and Butterfly Award of the Fourth Presidential Culture Award by the General Association of Chinese Culture
The Phoenix and Butterfly Award maintains the basic value of Taiwan’s environmental protection and the positive significance of the citizen movement achieved through cooperation among people. The Homemakers United Foundation demonstrates the firm willpower of Taiwanese women in environmental protection. It is precisely the most exemplary benchmark of the "Taiwanese spirit", just like the transformation and soaring to great heights of the phoenix and butterfly.
In 2005, we won the Sustainable Association Award of the National Sustainable Development Awards by the Executive Yuan
To encourage all citizens to promote sustainable development, the National Council for Sustainable Development of the Executive Yuan started to award the National Sustainable Development Awards since 2004. The Homemakers United Foundation won the 2005 Sustainable Association Award of the National Sustainable Development Awards.
