In addition to the 5 main programs in China – school construction and facility, Student Sponsorship, Teacher Training, Children’s Home and Special Education, our organization also sponsors other programs, such as winter clothing for rural area students that provides warmth for their growth and learning.
Winters have always been treacherous for children in the rural mountain areas.
When our staff returned from a follow up trip from the city of Zhaotong, Yunnan, they reported that children in high altitude mountain areas were wearing only thin clothing in the winter and did not have sufficient or suitable clothing or indoor heating to help combat the extreme cold, and this obviously impacted their ability to learn.
As a result, the “Sending Love” program was launched and has since received enthusiastic support from our society, helping to send warmth to the children in the rural mountain areas.
Since Sending Love program launched, we received various support from people and organizations from all walks of life to bring warmth to students in the mountainous areas. Attahment：Sowers Sending Love 2021 Report & Acknowledgement
