China Projects - Financial Aid
The county where we set up our help center is one of the poorest in the country. The students receiving aids are all excellent students. They come from low-income farming families that have difficulties to support their education.
We're currently sponsoring 6,584 children, ranging from grade 7 to grade 12. In total, since the year 2002, we have sponsored 15,808 students. A majority of the children come from minority families. Over 60% of the children we sponsor are girls, and we also reserve funds for children with special needs.
A middle school student (grade 7, 8, and 9) receives US$150 in financial aid per year, and a high school student (grade 10, 11, and 12) receives US$300 in aid per year.
Peach Foundation also makes college loans available to the Peach high school students who are advancing to college. Please refer to "College Loans" for details.
