In 2007, our founder Shun Yen Siu, returned to his hometown of
Shantou, China where he was extremely disheartened to
discover that many children in the community did not have
access to public schooling because of pre-existing laws. Mr. Siu
immediately took action to find a grassroots solution to a national
crisis and founded the School of Dreams near our production
headquarters. He renovated an existing school to create a safe
and nurturing environment for learning, and sought out the most
qualified and passionate teachers from China and the U.S. The
School of Dreams provides an equal opportunity for quality
education to all children of migrant workers in Shantou. In
addition, the school offers free lunch and afternoon snacks to
promote healthy nourishment and growth, and recently purchased
two brand new school buses to transport students. With over
300 students enrolled from preschool through the sixth grade,
the School of Dreams has flourished as a place where children
can receive the education they need for a bright future.

The school continues to run on Mr. Siu's philosophy of "quality
on the inside will reflect everywhere else," and we are constantly
finding ways to improve and expand its infrastructure. Each year,
Lafayette 148 New York embarks upon new fundraising initiatives
to ensure that the students have the books, supplies, and
equipment they deserve. The School of Dreams has become a
source of pride and joy for all of us at Lafayette 148 New York
and an integral part of the company culture.
