Inauguration: Peking University's "Si Shan Yuan"

For over two decades, Dr. Thomas Chen, Chairman of Si Yuan Foundation, has been a strong supporter of education in both mainland China and Hong Kong, believing that education has a lasting impact on young people’s development and their future as productive citizens. Following the family tradition, ZeShan Foundation under the guidance of the family's second generation, has been actively supporting innovative educational initiatives to promote capacity building. Recently, ZeShan and Si Yuan jointly committed RMB 20 million to establish a dedicated development fund in support of the Peking University–The Hong Kong Polytechnic University China Social Work Research Centre.
The Centre, a joint effort by the two universities, was created to boost the nascent and budding social work development in mainland China. With support from Si Yuan and ZeShan, the Centre has developed a ten-year plan to turn itself into an international hub for education and research.

To commemorate the partnership, the compound of the Centre was named Si Shan Yuan (思善苑), taken from the names of the two sister foundations. Mrs. Eva Chen crafted the calligraphy that was inscribed on the rock harvested from the famed Mount Tai (泰山石). The unveiling ceremony was held on July 20, at which Prof. Zhou Qifeng, president of Peking University, presented Dr. Thomas Chen with the Outstanding Educational Contribution Award in recognition of his unwavering support for education in China.
