1) Objective

Established in 2003, The Chen Yet-Sen Family Foundation is dedicated to enhancing access to learning and development opportunities for all with a strategic focus on education improvement. Its belief is that effective philanthropy is built on acquired knowledge and domain expertise across a number of diverse initiatives in key focus areas. As a hybrid organization, the Foundation supports grants programs as well as operating its own Special Projects.

In order to maximize the impact and effectiveness of the programmes they sponsor, CYSFF has key areas of focus. By predominantly concentrating their efforts on childhood literacy and vision correction; including library and reading programs for young children, education support for Hong Kong’s ethnic minority communities, and providing universal eyecare to developing nations, they have built up a level of domain expertise that makes our Foundation a key resource for these issues. They also support the following: (1) Basic life skills training – to enhance the self-confidence, problem-solving abilities, leadership and teamwork skills of children; and (2) Non-profit capacity building – to improve the organizational effectiveness and performance of non-profit organizations.
