L&L is a major sponsor for the International Leadership Foundation ("ILF"), a non-profit organization that promotes the civic awareness, public
service and economic effectiveness of the Asian-Pacific American community. ILF's mission is to develop young leaders in the United States,
Asia, and other Pacific-rim countries in the fields of public service, entrepreneurship and the international arena through a network of business
and community leaders.
Through the ILF Civic Fellowship Program, they provide scholarships to APA college students and place them in structured Summer Internships
with government agencies. ILF Fellows are future APA leaders in the academic, cultural, business, community, medical, professional, or public
arenas. ILF provides these future APA leaders with a practical understanding of how our government and legislative process works. L&L's
contributions directly fund multiple ILF Fellows each summer in Washington D.C.
The local initiatives include priority local recruitment and training; priority local sourcing of supplies including lumber, brick, and food provisions;
visits to senior citizens; provision of small stipends to the elderly; and support to high school graduates attending college. The Weishe Mine's
operation is steadily expanding to over 130 workers at the present time.
Dickson Lee, Chairman and CEO of L&L comments: "Last week our managers of Weishe Mine enthusiastically made contributions to the ethnic
minorities in the Guizhou Mountains. The social program builds strong relationship and trust, which facilitates our role as mining consolidator in
China. In parallel, L&L is also mindful of its US responsibility. We have provided to a Tukwila soup kitchen in Seattle, Washington, and donated
funds to a US based International Leadership Foundation (ILF) with scholarships for the US college students. We will continue giving back to the
communities as we move forward".
