Projects

1. The “One to One Subsidization” Project

On May 23, 2005, this Girls Class was inaugurated in No. 1 Elementary School of Artux City in Kizilsu Kirghiz Autonomous Prefecture. There were 53 Uygur girls in the class, all from destitute peasant or herdsman families. The courses for the class were conducted in bilingually with a focus on Mandarin. The Meijiang Foundation found caring individuals who cared for the girls on a one to one basis. The dormitory, kitchen, and bathrooms were built, and cooks and house parents were employed for the girls. With brand new outfit, bedding, and living necessities, the girls started their new life in the boarding class. The Meijiang Foundation also found patrons to financially support these girls on a long-term basis so that after acquiring an education, the girls will have the support they need to change their own lives and that of their families for the better in the long-term.

The project, ever since its initiation, has been well commented on by both the beneficiaries and the donors. Increasingly more people have shown their support, and nearly a thousand students have benefited from the program to date. This project is often featured by the Meijiang Foundation.

The “One to One Subsidization” Project, quite an innovation compared to the traditional form of charitable work, effectively strengthens national sentiment and unity by aiding a child financially and connecting a family. Not an ordinary charity, the project, on the basis of helping economically impoverished students from ethnic groups, encourages the patron and the beneficiary to connect and support one another emotionally, thus letting the minority students accept help and to mature and develop in a healthy way. In remote areas, this project serves as a means for families of different nationalities to communicate with each other, thus contributing to unity and stability along the national border.

2. The Meijiang Foundation Breakfast Plan

This plan aims to help meet the physical needs of students by offering them nutritious breakfasts, and to promote the students’ heath.

In 2007, while visiting the students’ dormitory in Akto county of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, the Meijiang Foundation’s inspection team observed that impoverished students there regularly begin school without first having eaten breakfast. In Cooperation with the Li Ka Shing Foundation, the Meijiang Foundation initiated the Breakfast Plan, providing 1 RMB a day to the 3179 students from Akto Experimental High School and Akto No. 1 Middle School. Every morning, every one of these students receives a cup of milk tea, an egg, and a naan (a Uygur pancake). They no longer begin school on an empty stomach.

3. The Meijiang Scholarship

Together with the Wanxiang Group Corporation of Zhejiang Province, Great Land Bridge Investment and Development Co., Ltd. of Gangsu Province, the Meijiang Foundation set up scholarships to help high school students excelling in character and in learning from Huining No.1 and No. 2 High Schools of Gangsu Province. These students would receive 300 RMB annually.

(1) The Meijiang-Wanxiang Scholarship

The Meijiang Foundation, collaborating with Wanxiang Group Corporation, set up the scholarship in December 2007 to offer 600 thousand RMB annually to 2,000 students excelling in character and in learning from Huining No.1 High School of Gangsu Province. These students receive 300 RMB annually.

Mr. Lu Guanqiu, the founder of Wanxiang Group Corporate and an entrepreneur with a deep sense of corporate citizenship, was invited by US President Barack Obama to attend the round-table convention of entrepreneurs held by President Obama and Chinese Chairman Hu Jingtao. He was also privileged to take Chairman Hu Jiangtao on a tour of Wanxiang (US) Corporation in Chicago and the Chinese Corporation Exhibition held in the US.
