Success in Shaoguan

We should say to each of them: do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. . . You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel.
~Pablo Casals

When Love Without Boundaries opened its first Believe in Me school in 2004, our goal was to make education inclusive for all children living inside the orphanages where they were built, regardless of their special needs. Over the last twelve years, we have helped set up nine such schools, and we think the results have been pretty amazing. Read more.

Best Buddies

Today we thought you might enjoy seeing some of the ‘best buddies’ pairs from our Believe in Me orphanage schools as they play and learn together. Forming friendships is an important part of development for all children. For children growing up in an orphanage without a family, friends are a crucial source of support and connection. We are so grateful that our Believe in Me schools foster safe and supportive environments for these friendships to flourish.

Girls On the Move!

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!”

Introducing the 2015 Teacher Training Teams

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.
