Mind Stretching At Our Believe in Me Schools

A mind that is stretched by new experiences never goes back to its old dimensions. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Children living in orphanages are often not able to attend public school due to their special needs.  As a result, we created our Believe in Me schools, located directly inside several orphanages throughout China. These schools serve children who may not otherwise have a chance to receive an education. We’d like to share some of our students and their daily activities with you so you can see what kind of mind-stretching goes on in our Believe in Me schools!
