John Swire & Sons (China) has signed an agreement with the China Development Research Foundation to donate RMB2 million to the foundation in support of the "One Village One Preschool: Village Early Education Centre" programme. The programme is dedicated to providing preschool education to children in poor rural areas and promoting educational equity.

Swire's donation will also be used to facilitate the foundation's research and data collection and assist in selecting quality preschools to establish as pilot projects and role models for different local governments. A "One Village One Preschool Teachers Manual" will be developed to support preschool teacher-training by providing guidance on the selection of teaching resources and materials and on school administration.
