63% of rural children are unable to attend high school, and only 8% reach university. CRC Education Sponsorship program consists of providing students in the countryside who attend high school with a sponsorship of 2,775 RMB/year. Alternatively the students can attend vocational school or university.
The sponsorship helps the poorest students cover their yearly school tuition, boarding fee and basic living expenses such as books, clothes and transportation.
CRC Education Sponsorship program supports 265 students and operates in 9 provinces, namely Guizhou, Fujian, Sichuan, Yunnan, Qinghai, Ningxia, Gansu, Guangxi, Inner Mongolia.
We work with community leaders in the countryside who have a trusted and long-term relationship with us to gather information, identify students who need support, and provide updates.
Sponsorship funds are transferred directly into the student’s bank account. Following each transfer, community leaders provide CRC and the sponsors with their report card to confirm that they are attending school, and that their marks allow them to continue to the following semester.
Sponsors are strongly encouraged to travel with CRC to visit the students in the countryside, meet them in person, and gain a deeper understanding of their lives and circumstances.
