Through the assistance of SANY Foundation, Daotong Village is progressing towards becoming a model village where residents enjoy a high quality of life.
Nurturing Rural Education
Recognizing education as a cornerstone of social development, SANY has prioritized educational initiatives. Since 2007, with a donation of 85 million yuan to local education, SANY has established a SANY School in Lianyuan, and provided subsidies to over ten thousand senior high school students in realizing their dreams. In the realm of early childhood education, SANY initiated kindergartens in each village to narrow the educational gap.
