Since 2004, LWB has been helping rural and impoverished students realize their dreams of getting a higher education. In China, mandatory education is only through middle school, and high school tuition is often far beyond a family’s means. Many students in the countryside begin working full time after middle school, and it is often hard for them to break out of the cycle of poverty without continuing their education. For the last three years, we have been honored to work with a group of students in Anhui province. We are so grateful to our supporters who have allowed these great kids to attend high school, and we are excited to announce that the entire group earned their high school diplomas recently!

Bozhou was just granted permission to begin international adoptions, and so we look forward to helping as many children as possible find healing and then a permanent family. Children like lovely Julie Ann.

Coined by 16th century poet John Donne, the expression “No man is an island entire of itself” can well refer to foster care, or any one of our programs. Though distinct entities, our programs are tightly connected and work closely together to achieve the best possible outcomes for each and every child that we care for.
Not yet one year old, Vivienne is a wonderful example of not two but three programs connecting and communicating to care, nurture and love her. Born prematurely, Vivienne was a tiny, fragile baby when our Medical team facilitated necessary hospitalization. Read more.

May has arrived and with it a holiday celebrated by many around the world: Mother’s Day, or Mothering Day as it is known in the UK and Ireland. This May, we celebrate the women in our programs who love and care for children in their care and focus particularly on foster care.
It’s hard to believe that the chubby-cheeked, healthy looking little boy that entered Fuyang foster care program just two weeks ago is the same wee baby that came into our care less than a year ago fighting for his life.
Born prematurely, Cohen had the odds stacked against him in every way.
Tian Chi is a motivated senior in our Anhui Secondary and Higher Education (SHE) program. He tells us that he is always thinking about how to go one step further to improve.
