For the past 16 years, Intertek China has provided funding to support the education of young people from low-income families in Chongming, Shanghai. The student aid programme gives those from challenging backgrounds the opportunity to complete their education, from primary school to university.

In addition to the financial contribution, the Intertek China team stays in contact with the young people through one-on-one mentoring and online support groups. In the summer of 2023, the team also delivered books and stationery to Chongming, as well as arranging a visit to Shanghai Insect Museum.

As of the end of 2023, we have supported more than 40 students, with over 20 of them now graduated and working, including students who have become teachers and those studying for degrees in important fields like medicine.

We recently extended our support of the programme for another five years, ensuring that our current students will continue to benefit from access to quality education.
