Ka-Shing

There are few islanders in the world since world war 2 that have done more to keep sustainable world trade going for all 8 billion people than the remarkable families of hong kong

whenever a place helps the rest of the world find its way its worth looking at the billionaire in the background - in this case the remarkably modest ka-shing

what did ka-shing do that you may not know about

1 he founded a university (CKGSB) with branches that keep truth going for stident networks mediated between such rival cities as new york and beijing

2 look at the university publications and you can see how much research has been going on to make sure china's digital currencies are hi-trust for everyone

3 look at the transparency ckgsb is helping hong kong bring to infrastructure banking - nb everybody outside usa (and maybe some inside) knows that humans need infrastructure banking to be mapped transparently- so why is there so much fame media rather than true mapping

The Li Ka Shing Foundation (李嘉誠基金會) is a Hong Kong-based charitable organization founded in 1980 by Hong Kong entrepreneur Li Ka-shing. It is the second largest private foundation led by a wealthy individual in the world, after Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.[1]

The Third Son[edit]

Li Ka-shing considers the Li Ka Shing Foundation to be his "third son" and has pledged to donate one-third of his assets to support philanthropic projects. He has called for other Asian entrepreneurs to do the same, in the hope of altering the traditional notion of passing wealth through lineage.
The Li Ka Shing Foundation's story stretches back over three decades: Having grown up witness to suffering and illness, Li Ka-shing cultivated a compassion that set in motion the idea of establishing a charitable foundation.

Mission[edit]

Li Ka Shing Foundation supports projects that promote social progress through expanding access to quality education and medical services and research, encouraging cultural diversity and community involvement.
Every project and every donation stems from Li Ka-shing's belief in the inherent value of each human life, regardless of race, class, or circumstance. He has devoted himself to helping others overcome the educational and physical barriers preventing them from achieving their potential.

Three main focuses[edit]

  • Encourage giving to nurture a new culture of philanthropy in Asia
