HOPE Annual Report - Part 1 of 3

Dear HOPE Supporters and Family,

This report, written by HOPE Program Manager Lucia Zhou, will be the first of three reports showcasing all HOPE has achieved in 2021. Please continue reading to learn about our activities, accomplishments and where HOPE may be headed in the future.

2021 showed that HOPE is a big family with participants, volunteers, donors, team of staff and very important horse partners. In 2021, the extended HOPE family has more than 500 members. With the assistance of 6 horse partners, the Equine Assisted Services program has served 105 participants for a total of 1059 hours. With everyone's support and company, HOPE has ushered in a brand-new 13th year. At this time, we are full of gratitude and joy!

This report is for all the HOPE family members to highlight the efforts and gains of this year. Thank you for your continued support. We wish you and your family a happy Chinese New Year of Tiger, peace and joy!

  • In March, HOPE entered into a partnership with Beijing Xiwu Country Equestrian Club, allowing HOPE to expand to two locations, reach a wider audience and potentially serve more individuals in the future.
  • In May, HOPE participants made their equestrian debut at a horse show hosted by Oriental Equestrian Club demonstrating the equestrian skills they learned at HOPE.
  • In September, the HOPE project on Tencent Charity Day 99 was selected as a "small and high-quality project" by Tencent Charity. More than 230 generous riders, volunteers, and the annual love Ambassador He Xian fundraised for HOPE.
  • In December, Program Manager Lucia Zhou received the PATH International Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor (CTRI) certification, becoming the first applicant to complete the whole certification process in mainland China. This is a historic breakthrough for the HOPE program and for Lucia.

As you can see 2021 was a year of highlights and firsts for the HOPE team. We are so thankful for the perseverance of the local Chinese Team for continuing to not just move forward but thrive over the last two years in the face of a global pandemic while continuing to provide these valuable services to the local community. Keep an eye out over the next three weeks as we continue to share the rest of the Annual Report. 

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to HOPE. We are so thankful for your passion and commitment to providing equine assisted services to individuals with disabilities in China.

With appreciation,

The HOPE Family
