Project Hope


In China, economic development is regionally imbalanced due to the vast territory of the country. In some areas, especially remote, impoverished areas, many children do not attend school. Additionally, insufficient funding in a number of research and education departments has restricted further development of education. This is having a detrimental effect on China's efforts to maintain long-term, rapid, and stable development and improve skills nationwide.

Haier is passionate about education and dedicated to providing it. Haier's CEO Zhang Ruimin is particularly concerned about children and education. "We have always believed that an enterprise cannot develop without the help and support of all sectors of society," he said. "Therefore, after an enterprise has developed, it should give back to society in a major way. From the outset, Haier has given back to society by being committed to children's education." Haier's first industrial park was inaugurated in 1995, the same year in which the Group donated CNY 380,000 for the construction of Laixi Wubei Haier Hope Primary School, the first of many schools funded by Haier in poverty-stricken areas throughout China.

Haier has already contributed funding and supplies worth CNY 500 million for public welfare projects, including total donations of CNY 92 million to Project Hope. By the end of 2016, Haier had funded a total of 246 schools (245 primary and 1 secondary).

Haier hopes that the construction of primary schools reflects the dedication of Haier's people to contributing to society. Project Hope is an initiative today that will benefit the generations of tomorrow. Haier wants to build primary schools not only to develop basic education in impoverished areas and positively contribute to improving school conditions in underdeveloped regions, but also to advocate a new trend throughout society in terms of supporting education and caring about future generations. Haier's list of contributions to public causes continues to grow, as does the Group's reputation for supporting public welfare undertakings. In the process of growing and creating its own international brand, and guided by its mission of "Sincerely giving back to society," Haier will carry on upholding the fine traditions of the Chinese nation by continuing to prioritize and wholeheartedly support public welfare undertakings, making a greater contribution to the public good in China.
