25 years of Shanghai Sunrise - Our impact: Changing lives

At Shanghai Sunrise, we believe education is the key to success. Finding a quality job without a university degree can be difficult; finding a quality job without a high school graduation certificate is exponentially harder. Without a solid education, the odds of getting ahead in life are really stacked against you, particularly here in China.

Even in today’s Shanghai, not everyone has the same access to education and many low-income families struggle to pay for basic education-related expenses. That’s where Shanghai Sunrise comes in: We offer disadvantaged students scholarships so they can complete their education — an education that gives them more opportunities in life and a chance at a brighter future.

Since 1996, we have partnered with numerous individuals, corporations and associations in the community to raise more than 35 million RMB, creating more than 12,000 educational scholarships. Once a student is enrolled into our program, our goal is to support them throughout their entire high school education and university years, should they successfully apply.
