A new Supor School inaugurated in China !
In some remote regions of western China, where economy is not so developed and transportation is not convenient, studying at a safe and bright classroom seems like a dream that local children are not able to reach… Supor, the chinese brand of Groupe SEB, believes that companies should set a good example with a strong sense of social responsibility and help unfortunate children to go to school.
The Supor School program started in 2006, and nowadays there are 12 Supor Schools (4 schools are under construction yet). 4,153 students and 229 teachers benefit from this program. Apart from donations for the buildings, Supor also contributes to set up libraries and canteens in these schools. Up to now, Supor has built 6 libraries with more than 11,000 books, and 2 canteens. Besides, some training programs are held for the Supor Schools teachers. In the future, Supor will continue to build schools (1-2 schools per year) and help improving education conditions in these schools.
The 8th Supor School built in China has been inaugurated on April 18th by Mr. SU Xianze( Chairman of Supor), Mr. Eric XU(VP of Supor), Mr. ZHAO Zhiran( Supor Yunnan dealer) and some local government officials.
The construction of Pingda Supor School started in March of 2011, with investment of RMB 1.88 million ($ 300 000). Today, 344 students and 26 teachers are able to study and teach at safe and bright classrooms instead of a broken and even dangerous buildings.
