Mr Edward Jr. MA Yat-ling

Mr Edward MA Yat Ling is an engineer by training at the University of Cambridge. Born and raised in Hong Kong by a humble family, Edward deeply appreciates the importance of education and how incredible changes can be made to one’s life by acts of simple kindness.

From his unique experience at Cambridge, he felt inspired by all the brilliant minds that surrounded him and learning from passionate people about what they do set him onto the journey of giving his time and efforts to do the right things.

Edward currently serves as a Director of the Boards of Wuhan College, a private, not-for-profit university in China, and the Yidan University Education Foundation, both founded by Dr Charles CHEN Yidan. His passion in people, philanthropy and education also led him into serving numerous charitable organisations on their boards and executive committees, including the Networks and Volunteers Working Group at the University of Cambridge; the Intellectual Forum at Jesus College, Cambridge; the Outward Bound Hong Kong; the Peace and Development Foundation, an official partner of the United Nations Development Programme; the Friends of Cambridge in Hong Kong and the Oxford and Cambridge Society of Hong Kong, giving back and delivering positive impact to the communities.

He aspires to join the collective effort at the Yidan Prize Foundation, drawing from the great ideas and wisdom of leading educators around the globe, to create a better world through education.
