CapitaLand Hope Foundation (CHF) believes helping underprivileged children at the earlier stage of their development will have a multiplier effect on the beneficiaries' families and the community, enabling social mobility in the future.
CHF has been collaborating with the Chinese government to build CapitaLand Hope Schools in China. The schools and dormitories are located in Inner Mongolia, Sichuan, Jiangsu, Guangdong, Hubei, Yunnan, Zhejiang, Shandong, Xinjiang, Shaanxi provinces, Chongqing and Tianjin municipalities. CHF has also built the first CapitaLand Hope School in Vietnam and CapitaLand Hope Dormitory for Children in Thailand.
Many of the primary schools in developing countries are poorly built and lack proper facilities. Some of the schoolchildren live in mountainous region miles away from school and need to travel up to two hours on foot to reach the school. The new school facilities donated by CHF create a more conducive learning environment, while staying in dormitories allow the children to focus on their studies and foster character development.
