Financial Aid: Light the Way
This year, we are supporting over 150 high school and college students in the Yunnan and Jiangsu Provinces of China. We grown to love these students and look beyond their academic performance. The Light the Way financial aid program aims to use academics as an avenue to build their character, look after their physical health and understand their family financial’s condition. Through Light the Way, we have see students grow and mature, making a positive impact on the community around them.

English Summer Camp
We planned to offer summer camps for about 500 students in the local public schools of Kunming, Tengchong in the Yunnan Province in 2017. However, at the end of June 2016, we suddenly received the notice from the authorities that the central government in Beijing banned all foreign NGOs (non-governmental organizations) from running camps in China. As a result, we had to cancel our Summer Camp program.
The locals partner with us to provide preschool classes for young children. Last semester, we added one more class and it quickly filled up. In the summer education program in 2016, more than 20 children graduated! We are currently waiting for government approval to continue this program, so we cannot register any new students until further notice.
