  • Corinne Richeux Hua

    Executive Director of NPO Stepping Stones

    Corinne Richeux Hua is a British/French national who studied Chinese at Cambridge University. Since graduating, Corinne has spent most of her working life in Shanghai before she finally left the corporate world to pursue her life-long dream to work in the non-profit sector. In 2006, while working for a local volunteering organization, Corinne discovered the need in Shanghai’s migrant community for English teachers. Not realizing at first what she was taking on, Corinne started organizing volunteers to teach English in the migrant schools in 2006, and out of these efforts Stepping Stones was born, an English teaching volunteering program which now involves around 350 volunteers teaching 5,000 students each week in more than 30 project sites in Shanghai. Stepping Stones also sends volunteers to teach English in rural China, and Stepping Stones’ “I Care” project provides spectacles and eye surgery for migrant children.
