Since 2011, Shangri-La Hotel, Harbin has been supporting 29 underprivileged students from seven senior middle schools in rural areas of Heilongjiang province; amongst them are Bayan Senior Middle School and Wuchang No. 2 Senior Middle School. The hotel assists high achieving students with tuition, lodging and learning aids in the hope of developing them into contributing members of their communities. Volunteers from the hotel often visit the students to support them through their academic progress and their general livelihood.
Yan Juntao was a student who was unable to pay his way through senior middle school. Once the hotel provided him with support, he was able to finish school with honours and was soon enrolled at the Zhengzhou Army University. Before his departure for university, Yan expressed his appreciation to the hotel and his aspirations to give back to his community after graduation.
Before Chinese New Year, the hotel provided all the students with items, including books and clothing, in order for them to enjoy the most celebrated festival in China and to see them through the next school year.
