"Pepole have always looked at donations as a one-way street; from the donors to those who are in need of support. But there is much more to it. A return street; from them to us, which enriches our souls and contributes in making us better people"
GCL is constantly committed to fulfill corporate citizenship. With a long time participation in the charity activities, it has built a sound brand of “Willing To Be Your Wings”, making GCL outstanding in this area among all the joint venture insurance companies. All the staffs in GCL are encouraged to dedicate themselves to the voluntary works.
Guided by the brand "WillingTo Be Your Wings", GCL HQs and branches have initiated more than 40 public welfare programs by themselves or cooperating with the NGOs, such as Red Cross, China Youth Development Foundation, All-China Women's Federation, and Paralympic Committee. These programs cover various aspects including sponsoring the uneducated students, helping the poor, disaster relief, environment protection, and sports. The total amount of donation and insurance premium contributed by the company has reached RMB 160 million.
A Glimpse of GCL's Public Welfare Programs
In 2006, GCL donated and built a Hope Primary School in Tianba village, Zhenyuan County, Pu'er City, Yunnan province. GCL has long been paying attention to the development of the school and the students and has set up the "GCL Scholarship".
