Yinxiang Biji, a Beijing-based information app, on Monday officially announced partnership with Shanghai-based WABC Charity Foundation to launch a special fund to enable underprivileged children and those with special needs to have up-to-date access to knowledge tools and resources.

"As we all know, the current potential created by rapid technological advancement is not balanced," said Raymond Tang, CEO of Yinxiang Biji. "As a technology company with massive unstructured data and advanced AI technology, Yinxiang Biji hopes to let more people benefit with our technological advancement and eliminate the tech-accessibility gap in today's world."

The fund will help provide accessibility to knowledge tools and resources to aid educating underprivileged children and those with special needs. And its future projects will be run by WABC Charity Foundation, Yinxiang Biji and a special youth council made up of young people aged from 15 to 20
