 Watching Young Minds at Work.

After installing the 30 computers for the village school children, we helped them get acquainted with the technology in front of them because many of these children have never been around a computer in their entire lives. As you can tell, they were extremely eager to discover the magical possibilities of the technology. 

Watching their reactions was simply priceless! Check it out below:

hurdles of poverty

Jan 15, 2014   Thank You To Everyone Who Has Supported Us !!!

*As of 1/15/14, we've surpassed our computer fundraiser's goal of $5,000. All the proceeds from $5,000 (excluding Indiegogo fees of 7-9%) onward will go towards the operation of our chicken facility in the same village. Our goal is to create self sustainable businesses for the villagers. Once the chicken farm operations is generating income, the villagers will be able to feed themselves for a lifetime.

With Directron matching $5,000 from our fundraiser, the children of this small village will forever remember this SPECIAL Chinese New Year! Our team will bring 30 brand new computers that you all donated and install them in their classroom before 2014 Chinese New Year (Jan 31, 2014). 

I would like to THANK everyone from the bottom of my heart who has made this fundraiser such a success! A very special THANKS to Mr. Michael Chang, the CEO and President of Directron, for matching our funds on Indiegogo! 

I'm truly amazed by how receptive people have been to our charity's cause and mission. Please give yourselves a round of applause because none of this would've been possible without your support!

In order to help the Chinese villagers, we set up a mini chicken farm in the USA to gain first hand knowledge. We discovered that the chickens do not like extreme weather conditions and they are very cautious of their surroundings. We applied Mr. Joel Salatin's method and have been raising our chickens on the pastures ever since.

July 07, 2013 -  Participating in OCEF Foundation

Overseas China Education Foundation (“OCEF”), formerly known as SOS China Education Foundation, was founded in California in 1992, and re-registered in Houston, Texas in 2001. The sole mission of OCEF is to help underprivileged children in impoverished rural areas of China receive education and improve the quality of education in rural China. 

Operated primarily by unpaid volunteers, OCEF keeps operational costs minimal. Till 2012 spring, OCEF has sponsred 39,092 students, 470 rural libraries, with the operating costs accounted for 4.6% of annual donation receipts.


Since the beginning of 2010, OCEF has initiated strategic restructure of the funding programs, moving from direct financial assistance to a more comprehensive support system that aims at improving the quality of education in rural China. In this new system, OCEF selects qualified schools to aid comprehensive series of programs including infrastructure improvements, teacher training, student financial aid, advanced reading programs and health programs. These programs are tailored towards the needs of the local school and will have more profound and positive impacts on both the accessibility and quality of local education in the long term.

June 30, 2013  -  Many Thanks to Mr. Joel Salatin / Polyface Farm

Our local children thanked Mr. Salatin for giving his advice to the project. Mr. Joel F. Salatin is a well-known American farmer, lecturer and author. Mr. Salatin’s farm produces high-quality "beyond organic" meats, which are produced using environmentally responsible, ecologically beneficial, sustainable agriculture. We will use his techniques in our farm practices.

Mr. Salatin's farm is featured prominently in Michael Pollan's book The Omnivore's Dilemma and the documentary film Food Inc. His unconventional farming practices have drawn attention from the alternative agriculture community worldwide.

May 1, 2013  -  This month Mr. Y.W Duan, a local veterinary and an herbalist, joined our team.

Mr. Duan has been raising free range chickens for more than 12 years while he practices medicine. With his help, we will launch our second initiative program called Drug Free Zone (DFZ).

Most poultry producers in China give their birds several vaccine shots during their life time and feed them with
“commercialized food”.

With additional fund we raised, this month we will buy 1000 layers (egg producing chickens) and give 50 village families who will raise them in a DFZ and pasture based environment under Mr. Duan’s supervision. If the DFZ program succeeds, we will be the first chicken farm in that area produces healthy eggs and at same time to help the locals who are in need of financial assistance.




April  8, 2013  -  We are beginning to build the foundation of the chicken coops by utilizing local raw materials.

BEIJING, December 30, 2012 (XinHua News)


Chinese leader Xi Jinping urged local authorities to escalate poverty-alleviation work during his weekend visit to impoverished villages in north China's remote Fuping County.

Braving chilly weather around minus-10 degrees Celsius, Xi, reached Fuping, an impoverished county set deep in the Taihang Mountains of Hebei Province, on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday morning, Xi visited farmers' homes in the villages of Luotuowan and Gujiatai in Longquanguan Township to get a first-hand look at people's lives there. During chats with villagers, Xi paid special attention to difficulties in their daily life, such as problems concerning income, food, education and medical care. He also visited village clinics and shops and talked with village officials. During his visit, Xi said local officials should always bear in mind poverty-stricken groups and work for them with their whole heart and soul. Local government authorities should place more emphasis on the mission of helping people out of poverty, especially people in impoverished regions, he said. Xi also said the authorities should strive to find the right way to bring the people out of poverty by adjusting policies to conditions in a scientific manner. Xi said policies designed to support agriculture, rural areas and farmers and alleviate poverty must be implemented fully, calling the embezzlement of poverty-alleviation funds an "intolerable crime."

"The most arduous and heavy task facing China in completing the building of a moderately prosperous society is in the rural areas, especially the poverty-stricken regions," Xi said. He made the remarks after hearing officials' reports on local economic and social development Saturday night. A well-off China won't come if people in rural areas can't live a well-off life, he said.

Based on the current poverty line of 2,300 yuan in annual net income per capita, China has 128 million impoverished people in rural areas, accounting for 13.4 percent of the population in the countryside. Over the past three decades China has achieved great progress in alleviating poverty, a fact recognized by the international community. However, China has a serious gap between different regions and between urban and rural areas in terms of development levels, which is a pressing issue. Resolving this problem will be a long and arduous task.

Professor Ai Yiwei said China will surely have a better future if the new leadership of the CPC carries out the country's reform and poverty-alleviation drive earnestly and in a down-to-earth manner. As for Xi, he expressed his own vision for change in impoverished regions. "With confidence, people can make yellow soil into gold," said Xi.
