Seeds of Hope

Practising the motto of aligning with “love and charity” 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 in 2008. With the funds collected by our students from all YCIS campuses, we created Sichuan Earthquake Educational Development (SEED), to channel the funds into the restoration of the Minzhu Primary School in Anyue County, Ziyang City, Sichuan Province.

From the original SEED funds sprouted the vision for Seeds of Hope. By partnering with local non-profit organisations our goal is the establishment of Seeds of Hope Schools in rural China. By creating Seeds of Hope, Yew Chung and Yew Wah schools 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 Seeds of 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.

As alumni, if you are interested in participating in a Seeds of Hope or fundraising project, or would like more information on donation options, please contact us at secretariat@alumni.ycef.com.
