The program provides necessary living and learning support for orphans living in difficult conditions and builds social supporting networks for these orphans by creating opportunities for them to interact with peer groups, communities, schools, and teachers. The project is raising funds to support orphans in 15 provinces, municipalities, and autonomous regions. In 2017, the program won The Jiangsu Charity Award as The Most Influential Project.

Recent Developments:

In 2019, the program supported over 33,500 students throughout the year in 17 provinces across the
country, including 20,800 students at the compulsory education stage, 8,244 senior high school students, and 4,471 university students.

Highlights:

The team planned several events based on different festivals, such as the “New Year’s Taste in the Mountains” (displaying Chinese New Year’s customs in various places) during the Chinese New Year, the “Glimmer Plan” (career planning guide) in May, and the “Little Brushes, Big Dreams”(paintings by beneficiaries) in June. These events brought more extended project areas and richer meaning to the program itself.

Philosophy

"To promote the whole-person development of orphans, protect their spiritual growth and accelerate their social integration process."
