During our Teacher Training this June, we were made aware of three beautiful girls in three different Believe in Me schools in need of new medical walkers. We ordered them and couldn’t wait to see how the girls liked them. The walkers have arrived, and when we saw these photos that old Luther Vandross song came to mind: “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now…We’re on the Move!”

During our recent teacher training in China, the children at the Believe In Me orphanage school in Jinjiang were treated to a trip to the seaside!
Getting a chance to walk on a beach and enjoy the water may be something we take for granted, but for these kids, it was a first. Most of these children have had very few opportunities to leave the orphanage, and so this was a day full of excitement and new experiences. What a delight! Read more.

Every two years, and sometimes more often thanks to generous donors who believe in the power of education, LWB sends a training team to China. This teacher training team collaborates with teachers in our Believe in Me (BIM) Schools about how to better meet the needs of students with a variety of abilities and challenges. It’s an incredible time of working together on behalf of students.
Instead of meeting at a central location as in years past, this year the workshop trainers from the USA will split into three groups. Read more.

We can’t help it. When we saw Carter this month, the song “Happy” started playing in our heads. If only we were all this happy when we brushed our teeth, no one would ever be afraid of the dentist!
We have had another great quarter in the Safe Dental Care program, thanks to your support. Due to the donations we have received so far, we were able to begin this program in five of our Believe in Me schools – Changzhi, Jinjiang, Huainan, Lanzhou, Liupanshui, and Shaoguan. Read more.
Lydia is six years old and attends LWB’s Believe in Me School in Jinjiang. We have seen a remarkable change in Lydia since she arrived at our school.
Previously a shy and withdrawn little girl who would never smile, it is hard to believe she is the same child! She is always smiling and joins in with all the fun. Read more.
