When my siblings and I were searching for a meaningful name for our foundation, we naturally turned to our parents for  inspiration – and thus the name of ZeShan. The Chinese calligraphy in our logo is written by our mother.

ZeShan - literally meaning “to be benevolent” - originates from the Doctrine of the Mean (Zhongyong), a major Confucian text that defines the unswerving pursuit of benevolence and righteousness as the fundamental element of truth and integrity.  In naming the foundation ZeShan, the Chen family hopes to keep these Chinese virtues alive through promoting good causes and helping the less privileged. 

ZeShan’s projects are funded based on the collective vision and philosophy of each of the family members of my generation, including spouses, and the three oldest members of our next generation.  In time, I am confident that the younger ones will also be able to participate and add their own contribution to our family foundation.

We have worked hard over the years, but we have also learned and grown, and our lives have been enriched by helping others as well as by working together through the Foundation.  For me especially – to be given the opportunity and trust by my siblings to lead the Foundation has truly been a privilege.  To them I say “thank you.”

We are sowing seeds for future sustainability, and we hope these seeds will grow deep and spread far.
