Corporate Social ResponsibilityAt eBaoTech, corporate social responsibility is an integral part of our corporate values. eBaoTech’s corporate social responsibility program organizes events throughout the year in response to real needs. We are dedicated to contributing to the local community, and believe that active community involvement benefits us all: our employees, our company and the communities in which we do business.
In 2011, the charity beneficiary is the Minzhi Elementary School in the town of Baise, Guangxi Province, China. The project was proposed and advocated by Ray Wang, the Americas Division project manager. Ray worked at Minzhi Elementary School as a volunteer teacher for 3 months at the beginning of 2011. Upon his return, he related the harsh living conditions of the approximately 100 schoolchildren at Minzhi Elementary School, and their need for a fresh water supply system. In May 2011, eBaoTech’s corporate social responsibility team organized a company-wide charity auction and donation to help Minzhi Elementary School construct a fresh water supply system.

Some Past Community Involvement ActivitieseBaoTech is a member of the worldwide Junior Achievement organization, and was given the Fall 2007 Junior Achievement China Partnership Recognition Award. In the summer of 2009, a group of eBaoTech volunteers attended the Junior Achievement Migrant School Project. We brought the course “Our World” to this migrant school in the Pudong District of Shanghai, China. This course is specially designed for elementary school students and uses the story-telling method to teach them basic concepts of import and export, foreign exchange, and international trades.
In 2008, the Special Olympic Games were held in Shanghai’s oldest stadium, Jiangwan Stadium, which is located next door to eBaoTech’s headquarter offices in Shanghai, China. A group of 30 volunteers provided hospitality, logistical and translation support to athletes and spectators during the event.

In 2008, the Wenchuan Earthquake with a magnitude of 8 struck without warning, leaving some students of China’s Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE) stranded and unable to return to their hometowns during their summer vacation. In response, eBaoTech organized a special summer program to sponsor these students’ transportation, hotel and insurance.costs, and invited them to the Shanghai offices for a unique one-month summer training program. This summer program was named the Golden Plan, and included training, on-the-job-coaching and practice to help them better understand insurance operations. At the conclusion of the program, the students received eBaoTech Product Operation Level 1 certificates.
