In 1992, two of our founder volunteers spent a whole day travelling to poverty stricken areas in Yangshan County, Qingyuan City, Guangdong Province. With strong ambition and passion, they managed to visit a list of primary schools even with limited information and resources. This marked the first milestone of our education aid service.
After the visit, they founded Sowers Action. With a belief that “Knowledge can change Fate”, Sowers Action works to pool in social resources and efforts to improve education conditions for children in the mountain areas in mainland.
We are grateful to have full support from members and volunteers who participate in school construction work groups, student visits, teachers’ training, children’s home and various fundraising activities. With their devoted participation, from planning to execution, resources are properly mobilized and operation cost is kept at the lowest.
It is the selfless dedication and active participation of our volunteers that help Sowers Action move on to its 25th anniversary. Their expertise and valuable time are important components that enable us to continue the work in improving education condition in China.
