The SKF Hope Schools
The SKF Hope School project started in October 2006 and since then it has witnessed the successful completion of several SKF Hope Schools in the country.
In China, some children do not have basic schooling due to poverty, or the areas they are residing do not have adequate school infrastructures. All SKF units in China joined their efforts and collectively sponsored the Hope School programme.
The first SKF Hope was officially inaugurated on Sept. 27, 2007 in the area. The new school consists of six classrooms, one teacher's room, and one remote teaching room to be equipped with computers. The school has the capacity to accommodate 200 students.
On the day the school was inaugurated, people from SKF, the school, government and local media attended the inauguration ceremony.
A student representative delivered a speech and happily said "When everyone was looking forward to the Mid Autumn Festival celebration, we were all looking forward to the arrival of the SKF Hope School. We have been looking forward to a proper school for years and SKF has made our dreams come true."
The 3rd SKF Hope School was successfully completed and inaugurated on Oct 28. The school has six furnished classrooms to accommodate more than 230 students together with facilities including library, function room, meeting room and dormitory for teachers.
