Youth Education

CLP always pays close attention to the development of education. It endeavors to provide assistance to education through charitable activities and promote the development of community education.

Since 2001, CLP has launched the Support-a-Student programme in Guangdong, Guangxi, Yunnan and Guizhou. The program calls on CLP employees to make donations to poor students in the four provinces. The final donation amount consists of employee donation and a 1:1 matching fund from the CLP Group . These donations are mainly used to support such students’ study and daily necessities. In addition to financial assistance, CLP donors maintain regular communication with the students they supported and encourage them to study hard. In 2019, 700 poor students benefited from the programme.

Since 2014, CLP has also launched the Support-a-School programme in Jiulong County, Ganzi Prefecture, Sichuan Province. The programme makes annual donations to three local primary schools of the Zang Clan every year, benefiting more than 900 students there. Donations are mainly used to improve school facilities and equipment so as to create a favorable learning environment for students.

In November 2009, CLP allocated HKD 6 million to establish the CLP-Tsinghua University Clean Energy Education Fund. The fund provides financial assistance to needy students in the Electrical Engineering Department of Tsinghua University in Beijing. Known for its outstanding academic achievements and rigorous research, the department has nurtured numerous top experts in the power industry.

Moreover, the CLP-Tsinghua University Clean Energy Education Fund aims to promote exchange activities and research on clean energy development. Through these efforts, we hope to makea contribution to the energy sector on the Mainland, while supporting China’s transition to a low-carbon economy.
