The Shanghai Mulan Education Foundation recently celebrated its 30th year anniversary with an enormous reunion of its alumni scholars, as covered by Shanghai’s television channel ICS. The Foundation was established by Angela Chao’s parents and named after her mother, Mrs. Ruth Mulan Chu Chao. Dr. and Mrs. Chao were pioneers in the shipping industry and the establishment of this Foundation was equally revolutionary. They held strong beliefs on the value of education and its necessity for achievement in life. Recognizing that the superior education they received in China equipped them to face all subsequent challenges in their lives, Dr. and Mrs. Chao set up the Foundation to provide scholarships and access to education to the generations that would follow.
