PEACH FOUNDATION NEWSLETTER

September 2010, issue No. 26

Dear fellow PEACH members:

The following highlights our recent activities:

1.    PEACH Foundation 10th Year Anniversary Calendar:

2011 is PEACH Foundation’s 10th anniversary. We are sending every member a copy of our special edition calendar. The photos included in this calendar represent a collection of our children and volunteers. They are the witnesses of our work. We are also selling these calendars to raise funds for our 2011 Summer Camps. To order, please fill out and return the attached form entitled, “PEACH Foundation 10th Anniversary Calendar” with your check. This is a great opportunity to share our messages with a broader audience of friends and families. Thank you.

 

2. Summer Camps:

Three sessions of summer camps were successfully concluded on 8/6/2010, as 58 volunteer teachers and 25 PEACH college students served nearly 700 PEACH students in these camps. It was wonderful to have so many returning volunteer teachers who continued to bring their knowledge and love to the students, as well as the first-time volunteer teachers who saw with their own eyes the impact education and compassion had on the students. It was also special to have our own PEACH college students teaching the elementary school students during the third session of Summer Camp. The PEACH graduates learned that teaching and leaning go hand-in-hand. Our college students also serve as great role model to these young elementary students to never give up.

 

The 2011 Summer Camps schedule is as follows:

Registration for the first and second sessions start now, and the deadline for registration is 1/31/2011. 1st Session7/7/20117/18/2011       in YuanYang, Yunnan

2nd Session: 7/20/20117/29/2011 in YuLong, Yunnan

3rd Session: Elementary School camp - reserved for PEACH college students

Note: The Elementary School Summer Camp is not opened to public

 

3. Graduating Class Update:

In the summer of 2010, PEACH had 320 students graduated from middle school that were accepted to enter high school, and 328 high school graduates that got into universities/colleges. We are also very proud to announce that 121 PEACH students graduated from college this year. This is an amazing achievement, and we could not have done it without your help.

 

4. Inspection & Home Visit Trip in NingLang:

We visited 5 townships, 5 middle schools and 20 students’ homes during our inspection trip in NingLang County from 6/29 to 7/3/2010. This trip helped us to better understand the local needs and to accommodate our plans to expand in the region.

 

5. 2010 Volunteers Understanding Trip

Thirteen volunteers will take part in visiting some of the PEACH students’ homes in YuanYang County in Yunnan; from 10/24 to 10/30/2010 to better understand our children’s backgrounds and family situations.

 

6. I will be leading our Kunming staff to participate in the “Double-Nine Elderly Fair” organized by PEACH sponsor, Ms. Belle Chou, in JiangSu. We’ll be selling arts and crafts created by PEACH students in the fair. Please join us.
