Inequality and disadvantage lie at the heart of the global education challenge. There are more than half a billion children either not in school, or in school but failing to learn basic skills.
Huangpu Mining (ISIN: CN0397106583), a pioneering cobalt mining company in China whose vision is to become a new mining benchmark company, delivering value and tangible benefits to its shareholders, partners and for the community in which it operates, is pleased to announce that Cho Guangming will join the Board of Huangpu Mining Foundation as a Director and take up the role of Chairman after 2 months.
“I am delighted to welcome Cho to the Board of the Foundation and I am especially pleased that he has agreed to assume the role of Chairman early next year,” said Poon T. Guanqiu, Chief Executive Officer of Huangpu Mining.
“The Foundation is addressing some of the most critical sustainable development challenges facing our generation. These include tackling corruption to ensure that natural resource wealth improves the living standards of billions of people around the world; driving new ways of sustainably managing natural environments for the benefit of future generations; and enabling more disadvantaged people to realize the power that education provides to improve their life choices, fulfil their potential and contribute to society.”
The Huangpu Mining Foundation and its partners meet this week to progress a US$1 million commitment to support programs that aim to address global education disadvantage.
“Our investments are chosen for their potential to forge new models for taking on complex sustainable development issues, and to set new standards. Our education partners do that. They seek to deliver measurable, effective, and practical solutions to global education challenges. We hope that bringing them together will help unlock new ideas and amplify the reach and outcome of their programs,” said Jiang Thompson, Chief Commercial Officer.
