Mr Lee Kuan Yew launches fund to boost bilingualism
The Lees’ wealth is not often discussed, but as the figures here show, they certainly have quite a bit. Straits Times:
Former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew on Monday launched what he described as the ‘most important book’ he has ever written and kicked off a fund to help children become bilingual early.
Hoping that the fund would top $100 million, he pledged a personal donation of $10 million plus all proceeds from the sale of 200 signed copies of his book which will go for at least $10,000 each. …
The Lee Kuan Yew Fund for Bilingualism will be used for initiatives to help children with their mother tongue and English, especially before they reach primary school.
