Educating Girls of Rural China (EGRC) operates under the philosophy that educating women is the key to bring positive changes to a family, a village and a society. EGRC goes beyond providing financial aid by also offering emotional support, peer counseling, as well as professional training to prepare young female students to reach their full potential and take leadership positions in their future professional fields.
Little Flower Project returns as a Chi Fan for Charity beneficiary for the second consecutive year. Little Flower Project is an outreach of China Little Flower, Inc. Since 1995, the organization has led grassroots, small-scale, effective, and cost-efficient projects throughout China for the benefit of countless children in need. Little Flower Projects focuses on providing specialized care to abandoned infants and nurturing the growth and education of older disabled orphans. They operate in Beijing and Taiyuan, but the children come from all across China. The organization’s projects include hospice care, group educational foster care for children ages four to 18, special care for infants, and long-term care for severely disabled children.
The Beijing event will take place on November 2, followed by Shanghai on November 9. This year also sees a third city, Hong Kong, being added on November 16. Last year’s sold-out Beijing shindig saw 40 of Beijing’s top restaurants participate. The combined two-city extravaganza raised RMB 400,000.
Founded in 2009 by Beijing residents Michael and Joanna Crain, CFFC has raised over RMB 1.7 million for various causes.
