2018 Shanxi Education Support Camp – Application


The Shanxi Education Support project is designed for American kids to provide educational support to the underprivileged children in rural regions of Shanxi, China. We organize appropriate activities for our kids to explore the regional culture, experience the rural living environment, and interact with local students in Shanxi, an under-developed province in northwest China. We also raise funds and promote book donations to help the local schools expand their libraries for young students. Through the various integrated activities, we expect to enhance the kids’ appreciation of their convenient life styles in modern cities and their willingness to contribute to the development of the underprivileged societies.
