Seeds of Hope Project Kicks Off    

March 18, 2011

Aligning with love and charity within Yew Chung’s motto means seeking out opportunities to transform lives. Yew Chung Education Foundation (YCEF) is thrilled to announce the commencement of the “Seeds of Hope” project, the first system-wide Yew Chung charitable endeavour.

By the Seeds of Hope project, Yew Chung is making a commitment to help build schools in areas of need in China, one school annually in every province where there is a Yew Chung school. The town of Qufu in Shandong Province has been selected as the first location for our Seeds of Hope project. On March 31, 2011, a gala concert will be held by students from Yew Chung International School (YCIS) campuses across Mainland China and Hong Kong in YCIS Qingdao, serving as the official beginning for our Seeds of Hope project.

After the devastating earthquake hit the province of Sichuan in 2008, YCEF and YCIS campuses responded by forming the Sichuan Earthquake Educational Development (SEED), which raised RMB 1.5 million yuan to rebuild the Minzhu Primary School at Anyue County of Ziyang City in Sichuan Province which had been severely damaged during the earthquake.

From the original SEED funds sprouted the vision for Seeds of Hope, which grew into a partnership with the China Youth Development Foundation. This partnership will result in the establishment of primary schools in various parts of rural China. The funds generated by the fundraising endeavours of Yew Chung will be matched by local government organisations to build the desired school.

By creating the Seeds of Hope project, YCIS campuses are able to bring love and charity, in the form of educational opportunity and support, to many of the poor and disadvantaged children of Mainland China.
