Jacqueline: Blossoming at Our Qingyang Believe in Me School

Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about. ~Marilyn Monroe

One of the best things about our Believe In Me orphanage schools is seeing students who may not otherwise have a chance of attending school begin to blossom and grow in the classroom setting. Eleven-year-old Jacqueline from the Qingyang orphanage is one such student. She has cerebral palsy and limb differences and uses an assistive device to walk, so attending a public school would not be possible for her in China.

2016 Life Skills Camp

Over the last twelve years, we have been honored to help teens who grew up in orphanage care but were never matched with permanent families. These young adults will usually end up on their own sometime between the ages of 18 and 24, and our hope is to do whatever we can to help best them prepare for that day.

Orphaned Student Support in Jinjiang

Orphaned Student Support is an additional all-year tutoring program for students from orphanages who need some extra help with their studies.

These students from our Orphaned Student Support program in Jinjiang have been working with their teachers on reading and writing. Each child works at his or her own pace to ensure that he or she is truly grasping the lesson of the day. They work individually as well as in groups. By giving them the tools they need to be successful in their schooling, the program allows each child to live up to his or her potential. Read more.

For many of us, the end of the school year is within sight. Teacher Appreciation Day is officially celebrated May 3. It’s time to begin thinking about graduation and teacher appreciation gifts!

If you would like a creative and meaningful way to honor a recent graduate or special teacher, please consider giving an Education Giving Card. Instead of a gift card which allows the recipient to purchase something, a giving card means that a donation has been given in honor of a family, friend, grad or teacher to help orphaned and impoverished children in our programs in China.
