Students Visit Leyard Headquarters
Currently in China, there are 61 million abandoned children, 35 million migrant children, and 40 million children who are living in destitute areas. In 2014, Leyard Siyuan Stars Education Fund was launched in an effort to assist students from low-income families or who are obliged to drop out of school. It focuses on remedying the difficulties that students face in order to provide them with an opportunity to change their destiny through knowledge and education.
Thanks to Siyuan Stars Education Fund, Leyard Hope School (Nanmuping Middle School) has been the focus of Leyard’s charitable efforts for many years, providing funding for several projects to improve the school. Such projects include construction of a complete set of study facilities; 300 sets of new desks, chairs, and cotton quilts; two new pianos provided to the school’s music room; bathroom facilities for teachers and students; and a new, colorful campus culture wall complete with concrete walkways along the hillside. The school acts as a "home" for these children, providing them with safety, community, and comfort.
In July, part of the school's summer camp program, sponsored by the company, brought 50 students to visit the Leyard Headquarters in Beijing. During their visit, the students learned about the company, experienced some of the technology first-hand in the showroom, got to meet members of the executive team, and enjoyed a delicious lunch before heading off for games and a tour of Beijing. Victor Li provided a welcome and told the students about the impact the education had on his life and career. “The happy life, the good life,” he said, “is about learning to love.”
Siyuan Stars Education Fund has also held several similar activities nationwide leaving their lasting impact in Hunan, Hubei, Sichuan, Guizhou, and Hebei Provinces, Tibet, and Inner Mongolia.
