Special Charity : Seeds of Hope
We are practising the motto of “align with love and charity” in our daily lives. Through the “Seeds of Hope” project, our first system-wide Yew Chung charitable endeavour, students become aware of the necessity of involvement and action in our globalised society, and demonstrate love and care for all life on the planet.
Seeds of Hope is a concept born out of the overwhelming tragedy of the Sichuan earthquake almost three years ago. All Yew Chung International Schools (YCIS) responded wholeheartedly to the humanitarian needs resulting from that devastating earthquake. With the funds collected by our students from all YCIS campuses, we created SEED, Sichuan Earthquake Educational Development, to channel the funds into the restoration of the Minzhu Primary School in Anyue County, Ziyang City, Sichuan Province.
A Hope School is a co-operative effort whereby a primary school is built in a rural area of China to bring education and “Hope” to children. The funds generated by YCIS charity driven projects will be matched by local government organisations to build a Hope School. YCIS has a vision of establishing a number of Hope Schools through Seeds of Hope within just a few years. Our goal is to build Hope Schools in proximity to where YCIS has presence in order to foster a sister school relationship with the Hope School that we will provide ongoing support.
By creating the Seeds of Hope, 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. Furthermore, by creating “sister” school relationships with the Hope Schools, there is long-term opportunity for ongoing cultural exchanges, educational trips and charity projects that will be of great benefit to our student body for many years to come.
