In 2018, China's economy grew at a high rate of 6.6 percent, and for the first time, its economic aggregate exceeded 90 trillion RMB. Take 125th Canton fair, which was finished recently, as an example. Its total export turnover has reached 19.95 billion RMB. Is reflects that China are now taking an important role in world economy. But coming back to China itself, if the economy wants to grows sustainably, poverty is an issue that cannot be ignored.

The World Bank estimates that, by 2015, poverty rates in China were 0.7 percent. Now In February 2019, the National Bureau of Statistics released a report showing that at the end of 2018, there were 16.6 million people living in poverty in rural areas, which was 13.86 million less than the end of the previous year. All those efforts thanks to the great contribution from all the society.
Talking about education field, a huge gap is existing between urban areas and rural areas. Report from ProjectDaily explained that in China, 60% of students in rural areas drop out before high school and only 5% of rural Chinese students will attend college. China has continued making contributions to develop education for children in poverty areas, especially balancing educational resources between urban and rural areas.

We went through over 20 cites, providing education sponsorship to more than 64 pre-university students who were financially difficult in China. Those students have huge possibility and bright future, with our love and support they can go further.
