Support for Orphans in China
About this Mission Project
Xiao Li (shown right) lost her parents when she was younger. Mature beyond her years, Xiao Li is very bright, full of energy and fun, with excitement and hope.
The support that Xiao Li has from us has made it possible for her to study in high school and gives her the hope that she can realize her dream of going to college.
In 2003, we joined the Amity Foundation program to help students like Xiao Li to get an education. Today we sponsor 130 orphans giving them a chance to break free of the cycle of poverty. Funds provide clothing, food and school supplies making it possible for them to continue their education. This project will allow us expand the program to assist 250 orphans.
$260 will cover a year of school for 1 child in K–9. $520 will cover a year of high school for 1 teen. $1,200 will cover a year of college.
