“Kids help kids, one at a time” – Most of our volunteers are children aged 10-17. Over the past six years, these hard-working young volunteers have raised a total of $60,070 to sponsor 186 underprivileged students all over China. In 2019, they are aiming at the goal of achieving $15,600 to sponsor 58 students!

Kids on both sides need your support to be successful.

Together we can make a difference and have dream come true!

 

GEST (Gansu Education Support Team)

Mission and Goal:

Committed to offer education support for underprivileged children in China, our Gansu Education Support Team (GEST) project aims at helping children achieving their dream of continuing education and facilitating them for a brighter future.

Activities:

Since 2012, our young volunteers organized various fundraising events for the GEST project, such as selling moon-cakes, participating in the Microsoft Give Campaign, leading Run-A-Thon, and running the Goodwill Drive. All funds raised are contributed to support children in poverty-stricken areas in China continuing education. Currently, we support children from provinces of Shanxi, Sichuan, Shaanxi and Gansu in China.

Our young GEST volunteers visit the Chinese kids annually and organize English summer camps for them at their respective schools. It’s a valuable learning experience for kids from both sides.

Regular Annual Events:

  • Moon-cake Sale – It takes place about two weekends before the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival , usually between Sept. and Oct.
  • Participation in the Microsoft Give Campaign – October
  • Run-A-Thon and Yardsale – May
  • Goodwill Drive – June

Achievement:

  • $2,480 raised and 10 students sponsored in 2013;
  • $7,490 raised and 22 students sponsored in 2014;
  • $5,250 raised and 16 students sponsored in 2015;
  • $6,930 raised and 21 students sponsored in 2016;

2018安康支教

#安康支教 Day 1# 今年我们的孩子带来了足球,机器人,羽毛球,舞蹈,英文等活动。刘营小学的孩子们强烈的求知欲给小老师们留下了深刻印象。两年前觉得山里的孩子不注重英文,今年从校长到老师都很关注英文教学,希望有机会能学习更多英文教案。小老师来自美国,北京和景德镇。一上课,美国小老师的中文词汇量就露馅了,用词口语化,会出现英文直翻的情况。希望后几天越来越流利。来安康之前做好了战高温准备,没想到一下火车气候怡人,感恩老天的眷顾。非常感谢中心校领导的支持和刘营小学校长及老师认真的筹划准备,老师们晚上8点才陆续离开校区,感恩每年的活动能得到校方的支持是我们孩子的福气。第一天在欢乐的拔葱活动中结束。 Read More

【编者按语】一年一度的小大师中秋月饼义卖,是GEST小组为甘肃、陕西、四川三省的贫困学生筹措助学金的主要渠道之一。每年的中秋节前夕,都有小大师俱乐部的家长孩子们紧张忙碌的身影,有的在幕后策划指挥活动,有的在一家家的爱心厨房里加工月饼,有的购买准备原材料,也有大厨对制作月饼的过程严格把关,不容一丝一毫的差池。而月饼的订购更是一年比一年紧俏。今年尤其如此,在预定表发出的两天之内就全部抢购完毕。感谢朋友们的支持,让大洋彼岸的亲人们感受到西雅图华侨的博爱,让贫困山区的孩子们在年幼求学的道路上可以轻松前行。谢谢大家! Read More
