Teaching English to 180 Children in Rural China

by Shanghai Minhang Qu Hua Cao Pu Lu Shi Qing Shao Nian Fa Zhan Zhong Xin Vetted since 2016


Our organization plans to set up 3 virtual classrooms to provide free weekly English lessons (24 weeks per year) to 180 disadvantaged children in rural China, also providing English trainings to their school teachers. Lessons will be delivered via the Internet by volunteers based in Shanghai (or potentially anywhere in the world) who will be trained and supported by a professional trainer. We have ten years' experience of organizing and training volunteers to teach English in China.

The biggest educational gap between rural and urban children in China is English education, due to a lack of qualified English teachers in rural schools. Supporting the English education of rural children is an important need, because English is one of the three core subjects in the Chinese curriculum and one of the areas on which they are tested and compared throughout their school and work life. Rural families do not have the resources to access additional support for their child's education.


(1) Providing 1 videolink English lesson (45 minutes) per week (24 weeks per year) to 180 primary and middle school children in rural China. (2) Training and supporting 12 volunteers to teach the lessons. They will receive support such as workshops, lesson plans and teaching resources. (3) Providing teacher trainings to 6 of the students' teachers in rural China. The trainings will focus on oral English learning and will promote the participation of children in the teaching-learning process.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide weekly English lessons for a year to 180 disadvantaged children in rural China to help them gain confidence in English and pass their key examinations, which will optimize their access to higher education (i.e., high school and university) and work opportunities in the future.
