OUR VISION & OUR MISSION

 

Supporting Education in Rural Communities

Giving Communities Tools for Success


授 人 以 不 如 授 人 以

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime -- Chinese Proverb

We believe everyone should have access to education. We've discovered that many rural communities are forgotten and many school districts and children are in serious need. It's our mission to provide educational support to these underserved children who have the fewest resources. By increasing their chances of being confident in school, successful in their careers and empowered in their lives, we can make a forever lasting impact.

Strategic Community Partnership

Global Hearts, Local Roots


According to the Center on Education Policy reports, 68% of rural schools struggle with high student achievement gaps.

Our goal is to help the world; China and Colorado are simply the beginning of our journey. In the rural communities of Colorado and China, we understand the people, the language, the culture, and the local regulations and challenges. By collaborating with the communities and government, we share ownership of our projects to ensure a sustainable and enduring impact.
