Our Promise

Due Diligence


We work with the Shanghai Charity Foundation and Government Social Workers to identify promising students from low-income families. All of our students are genuinely in need: Their families earn less than 2,500 RMB per month and often suffer from hardships such as chronic or terminal illness.



Meet your student in person; hear their story in their own words. Receive regular letters from them as well as copies of their grades, so you can see how much your gift has impacted their lives.

Every Donation Counts


As a volunteer-led, non-profit organization, 100% of your scholarship donation will go to support our sponsored students. Keeping costs down means your gifts make the biggest impact possible.
