On November 29th, at the closing ceremony of the Global Education Summit (GES) 2017, the founders of New Oriental and TAL Education Group came together to stage a much anticipated finale. Yu Minhong (founder of New Oriental) and Tom Zhang (founder of TAL Education Group), promoted a wonderful "new path" in support of the conference.

现场两位老师共同宣布,新东方与好未来将出资一亿元人民币联合成立“情系远山公益基金会”,共同探索教育公益新模式,用科技推动中国教育均衡发展。

Together, they announced a joint venture of 100 million RMB to set up the Yuanshan Public Welfare Foundation. The two companies will explore new methods to promote the balanced development of public education, using science and technology throughout China.


按照计划,双方将各出资5000万元作为原始基金,整合各自的学科优势,形成合力,把优质教育资源通过现代科技手段输送到中国农村和边远地区,让农村和边远地区的孩子,看到更多的希望。据悉,这一基金会未来会成为一个开放的公益平台,欢迎所有教育行业同仁加入,为教育公平贡献一份力量。

The plan is that both parties will each contribute 50 million RMB, integrate their respective advantages in various disciplines, and make a concerted effort to bring high-quality educational resources to China's rural and remote locations. Modern scientific and technological tools will be offered to provide greater opportunities to children in these areas. The goal is that the foundation will act as an open platform for philanthropy going forward and all others are welcome to contribute towards equity in education.

2008年捐建希望小学开始,到2013年成立好未来公益基金、2016年好未来同一课堂项目通过直播技术和双师课堂将课程及产品搬进四川、甘肃的8所乡村小学。再到2017年,好未来希望在线教育公益平台上线,为资源匮乏地区提供优质在线课程和教学产品,开放直播及学习平台,好未来一直没有停止公益的探索和实践。

It began with the donation to fund the building of Hope Primary School in 2008, and was followed by the establishment of TAL Public Welfare Foundation in 2013. TAL also brought its “One Class” project to eight rural primary schools in Sichuan and Gansu. The project utilizes live broadcasting technology and TAL’s "dual-teacher” method. For regions with limited resources, Hope Online Public Education Platform was launched in 2017 to provide quality online courses and teaching products via a live learning platform. TAL is constantly engaging in the pursuit and practice of philanthropy projects.
