Deepen rural education and promote new changes in public welfare practices
As a loyal practitioner and active communicator of public welfare and charity, Wei Xue has been concerned about the difficulty of studying for high school students in rural areas for more than ten years. In order to promote the realization of educational equality, Wei Xue and her husband Li Dongsheng set up the "Huameng Fund" in 2007, starting with scholarships, to provide educational opportunities for young people who lack opportunities but have excellent academic performance. At present, Huameng Foundation has funded 1,290 high school students in poor areas, of which more than 500 have been admitted to first-class universities such as Tsinghua University, Peking University, Renmin University and Fudan University, and the undergraduate admission rate is close to 100 percent.
In 2012, Wei Xue promoted the establishment of TCL Public Welfare Foundation to promote the professionalization and sustainability of public welfare actions. In 2013, "TCL Hope Project Candlelight Award Program" was launched, focusing on rural teachers. In the past decade, TCL has continuously increased investment in education public welfare, and has helped 3,400 rural teachers in total, directly and indirectly benefiting 300,000 students. In recent years, TCL Public Welfare Foundation has combined its own industrial resources and technological advantages to explore the integration and symbiosis of science and technology and promote new changes in corporate public welfare practices. In 2022, TCL Public Welfare Foundation and TCL Central began to promote the construction of "TCL Photovoltaic low-carbon campus" to create a new model of photovoltaic education.
