STEP for China
About this Mission Project
Honghong, a first-grader, and his brother Zhouzhou, a sixth-grader, live with their elderly grandparents on one acre of land in China. Their small income from growing corn and wheat would make it difficult to provide what the boys need to stay in school without the help of STEP, the Student Tuition Education Program.
STEP funds provide clothing, food and school supplies. This program currently sponsors 18 orphaned children in China, making it possible for them to continue their education so they can break free of the cycle of poverty.
This project will allow the Amity Foundation to expand the program to assist 100 children in China through STEP.
- $260 covers a year of elementary school.
- $520 covers a year of high school.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $34,000 each school year to enable 100 orphaned children in China to get an education. The purpose is to provide a subsidy for clothing, food, school supplies and other necessities.
This project is managed by Ms. Liu Li of the Amity Foundation.
It is anticipated that this project will improve the equality of opportunity and the overall education and health of the community.

Honghong listens as Linda Mintener from Wisconsin and Ms. Liu Li from the Amity Foundation visit him and his brother Zhouzhou. We visit each child sponsored by STEP at least once a year to share our love and to encourage them. (Note: We are not able to show the faces of the children in order to protect their privacy.)
