Gansu Project

Spring Blossom Education Support Program

Dongxiang in rural Gansu province is one of the most deprived autonomy counties and one of the least literate ethnic minority regions in China.

Due to financial burden and culture, Dongxiang girls usually get marry at very young age and most dropped out of school before completing primary education. To encourage the parents to support the schooling of their daughters, in 2017, Changing Young Lives Foundation launched the “Spring Blossom” Education Support Program to subsidize Dongxiang girls aged 8 to 16 continuing their studies. Through better education, girls are empowered to change their destiny and seize a better future.
