Located in Chaihu town, Zhongxiang City, Hubei Province, built in 1966, CapitaLand Zhongxiang Hope School is a primary school catering to the schooling needs of children from four surrounding villages. CHF donated to build a three-story comprehensive teaching building completed in April 2015. In 2017, the local education commission renovated some of the school buildings, but one more teaching building, the kindergarten and school environment need to be improved.

During the 2018 expedition, volunteers will have the opportunity to interact with the students through activities such as sports, arts & craft and our signature CapitaLand Little Architect Programme. Volunteers can also contribute towards beautifying the students’ learning environment through wall mural painting.
