October 2011 │ China
China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation (CFPA) awarded Deutsche Bank China the "2011 Public Welfare Contributing Partner" accolade in an award ceremony held on 17 October in Beijing, in recognition of the Bank’s continuous efforts in improving education in poverty-stricken regions in China.
In partnership with CFPA, the Bank will be funding a 3600-watt solar photovoltaic power station at a primary school in a rural area in Qinghai Province. This project will provide electricity for 500 students and aims to attract more students to attend school and receive a comprehensive education. This is a meaningful programme as well given that energy conservation will be achieved.
