Establishment of “Lee Kum Kee Hope as Chef” Project

Since 2011, Lee Kum Kee has launched the "Hope as Chef" programme in helping youths in poverty-stricken rural areas who wish to become chefs, and fully subsidises them to enter national key vocational high schools in Beijing and Chengdu to learn Chinese cooking skills. By 2015, over RMB 10 million has been invested in Hope as Chef, benefitting some 350 aspiring youngsters with passion for Chinese cooking in China. The first two batches of students joined the catering industry in major cities in China after graduation in 2014 and 2015, contributing towards the development of the Chinese culinary industry.

Lee Kum Kee made further donations to set up Lee Kum Kee Corporate Scholarship in four key vocational education institutes in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu respectively, as tokens of encouragement to diligent students to enhance their professional knowledge and skills.
