It is understood that Apple’s support for the China Foundation for Rural Development began with disaster relief and reconstruction efforts after the 2013 Lushan/Yaan earthquake. Since then, the two parties have collaborated to establish the Good Products Society, which supports agricultural development, the “Smart Classroom” that introduces iPads into rural schools, and the Sichuan Mengdingshan Cooperative Development Training Institute, which has provided advanced skill courses, including e-commerce and quality control, to over 2,400 rural cooperative directors.

Meanwhile, last year Apple also established the Apple Smart Education Center, targeting supply chain employees, at Zhejiang University. The center features cutting-edge learning laboratories where supplier employees can engage in activities related to advanced mechanical manufacturing, programming, as well as health and hygiene courses.
