100 percent of your donation goes to the needy students for the basic elementary through high school education. It inspires them to work harder, do better, and feel less isolated. This project started in 2004 by Professor Tonghai Yang at University of Wisconsin. He visits poor students every summer. The charity has a volunteer teacher at each school it serves. We now support about 900 poor students in three counties in Anhui and Shanxi, and hope to support more with your support.
Some of these poor kids have lost their parent(s) to accident or disease. Some of them have family members seriously injured or chronically sick. Others have disabled family members. These difficulties make them hard to continue their basic education and make them feel isolated and ....
A little support can help stay in school to continue their basic education. It also gives them some confidence to work harder and do better in school. It makes them feel loved in the world and inspires them to be a better person too.
It has a huge long effect on these poor kids, their families, and the community. First, when they grow up with education and find jobs, they can support their family and themselves. Because of our long term commitment to them, they also learn to care and help others in difficulty situations. Actually, we have already former students to come back to support us. The inspiration to the local community is amazing too. Local people make 1/3-1/2 donations!
