Sponsor a Student (Scholarships)

Why to sponsor a student?
In the villages, the local economy is still mainly based on bartering and villagers live from their fields on such crops as - barley, maize, buckwheat, wheat and vegetables. The average yearly income is about 600 Rmb (60 Euros or 86 USD), and goes down to 200-300 Rmb in the remote villages. Under these circumstances, it is very difficult for them to pay for mandatory education.
They gather honey, wild mushrooms, medicinal herbs, wild berries and grow fruit like Sichuan pepper, peaches, nuts, papayas and pomegranate that they sell in the townships to make some money. There is sometimes the chance to work on some rare infrastructure projects such as roads or dams, or to work for the administration as teachers or in offices, etc.

Education means simply to be able to read and write, to understand what they sign, to be able to safely open a bank account, to understand what is written on a product or a medicine packing, to begin a small business, to be able to have access, to interact and feel connected to the outside world. It means also a situation where they can have access to positions (administration, technical jobs, management, etc.) where they will be able to control their future and have in their hands the future of their own region.

It means a future out of poverty.
