Dear Friends,

I’d like to take this time to thank you very much for your continued support. With your help, we were able to raise over $9,000 this year to assist in our continuing efforts to ensure that as many children as possible receive the education they need and to give them a chance to better their lives. We are currently providing support to 37 students between elementary school and university. Although we are hopeful we will be able to increase this number in the future (and there is certainly a large need), we also take our responsibility to these students very seriously, and once a student begins receiving support from us we want to ensure that this support will continue for as long as they are in school and in need. With the increasing cost of living in China the cost of supporting a child is also increasing, but we will continue our efforts and with your help will make a meaningful impact on these students lives.

On my last trip to visit with the children and local schools in Yunnan I met with some of our former students as well as current students preparing to graduate from high school and university. One topic that came up time and again was the difficulty they are having in finding meaningful employment after graduation. Therefore, over the next few years one of our goals will be to partner with local companies to provide employment opportunities for our students. We are always looking for new contacts in this regard, so if any of you know of local businesses in the area, we would be very grateful if you could share those with us.

We will again be hosting our annual Chinese dinner fundraiser next month and are looking forward to seeing many of you there for a great meal and thoughtful conversation! Again, thank you all for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Da-Jin Sun, President
