Social responsibility     

Cristina Bertrand´s companies, through the Program “Not a School Without Chalk” contributes and brings resources and volunteer time to rural schools in China in the believe that companies have to share its success with society.

A few years ago, while I was still living in the United States, I watched the movie Not One Less, directed by Zhang Yimou. I was very moved by the film and especially by the segment involving counting the precious chalks allotted to the school. I vividly recall the scene of the chalk on the floor and the Chinese word written with the last sliver of disappearing chalk. That scene inspired me to donate resources and my time to support rural schools in China.

My motto for this enterprise is “Not a School Without Chalk.” For me, chalk symbolizes the passing of wisdom from the teacher to the student, the value of small things and the care we should take of everything entrusted to us. I hope my contributions can help the rural schools to keep the chalks – as a symbol of wisdom – in the rural schools of China.
