The Yilong County Shifo Primary School is located in Xinchun Village, Shifo Township, Yilong County. It has 24 classes, nearly 1,000 students and 53 faculty members. The kindergarten is located at the main school and currently has 173 students. Due to the lack of teachers, classrooms, and other hardwares and facilities, there are only two kindergarten classes. Total investment in the new kindergarten is expected to be RMB 2.2 million. The construction area will be approximately 400 square meters, area of activity will be 800 square meters, and 220 students are expected to enroll.
Since building the Nanchong Factory in 2013, PFGHL has invested HKD 500 million and helped to create over 1500 employment positions in Yilong County. In October 2017, PFGHL began investment in the construction of a silkworm breeding base aimed at alleviating poverty and supporting agriculture, benefiting the whole Yilong County. The latest donation goes a long way toward solving the pressing issues facing Shifo Township Primary School. It provides strong financial support for the school and is further testament to PFGHL’s commitment to actively fulfilling its corporate social responsibilities. In the future, PFGHL will continue to bring its power as a company to bear, increase its charitable investments, ceaselessly improve its accountability and standards, and fulfill its corporate social responsibility through practical actions.
