SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation continues its donations to Hunan University in a new phase Educating and cultivating talent has achieved remarkable results
SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation (the Foundation) recently signed a donation agreement for the fourth phase of its scholarship programme with Hunan University (HNU), bringing its total donations to more than RMB16 million, and benefitting nearly 3,000 students.
The Foundation has actively supported charitable projects since its establishment in 2002, focusing on education and training projects. It has established scholarship and bursary programmes in a number of higher education institutions on the mainland and abroad to help outstanding students from poverty-stricken families complete their studies.
The Foundation has cooperated with HNU for nearly 20 years. To show recognition of the importance of the long-term cooperative relationship, HNU will specially set up a "Hunan University-SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation Scholarship Programme" student team to develop the students' knowledge, talent and social practices, and provide exchange opportunities.
In his speech, Xu Guozheng, Vice President of HNU, said, "We are sincerely thankful for the SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation's generous donations and strong support to Hunan University over the years. The donations bring not only material benefits to the aided students, but also spiritual motivation. The "New Wing Fund", initiated by donations from alumni in 2018, reflects their gratitude and demonstrates that the project has achieved remarkable results in education."
A representative of the recipients gave a thank-you speech at the ceremony. He said that looking back over the period he received assistance, the scholarships provided encouragement for him. One of his most profound memories was that when his family had a sudden change at the beginning of the year, the SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation provided him with timely support which helped him regain his strength and focus on the upcoming graduation year.
Amy Kwok, Executive Director of SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation, expressed her appreciation for HNU’s management of the scholarship and bursary programmes. She was particularly concerned about the proportion of poverty-stricken students in the school and the support they had. She was also pleased to see that 70% of the scholarship recipients continued their studies in various well-known local universities after graduating from HNU.
"There is still a long way to go to help underprivileged students,” she said. “The Foundation has provided scholarship programmes to more and more universities on the mainland, and has witnessed a good development of the country's central region. We hope that the new phase of the funding project for HNU will continue these fine traditions, and nurture more outstanding students."
The SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation has funded more than 75 charitable projects in the areas of education and training, poverty alleviation, medical care and social services, benefiting more than 65,000 people.
