The Chen Yet-Sen Family Foundation nurtures the potential of the next generation by building, supporting and sustaining innovative approaches that enhance learning and personal development.
The Foundation, based in Hong Kong, was formed in 2003 to continue the philanthropic efforts of James’ late father, Robert Yet-Sen Chen . With a strategic focus on early childhood literacy, library development and educational enhancement, the Foundation's work reflects the shared interests of the family members who run it to this day.
Operating a hybrid model, the Foundation works closely with its grantees, while also running its own special programmes that cover reading and library development, NGO capacity building, research and incubation. The majority of these projects operate in Mainland China, but activity also extends to Hong Kong and Ghana.
