About Event

Dongxiang in rural Gansu province is one of the most deprived autonomy counties and one of the least literate ethnic minority regions in China.
Due to financial burden and culture, Dongxiang girls usually get marry at very young age and most dropped out of school before completing primary education. To encourage the parents to support the schooling of their daughters, in 2017, Changing Young Lives Foundation (CYLF) launched the 'Spring Blossom' Scholarship Program to subsidize Dongxiang girls going back to school. Through better education, these girls are empowered to change their destiny.
In 2018-2019 school years, CYLF extended the program to benefit boys in need as well and have helped a total of 140 girls and boys return to schools in Dongxiang.
In the coming school year, we target to raise HK$350,000 to support 200 Dongxiang children aged 8 to 16 to continue their studies for another year.

位於甘肅省偏遠落後地區的的東鄉縣,為中國最貧窮的自治區之一,也是國內其中一個文盲率最高的少數民族區。
基於家庭經濟壓力及風俗,東鄉女性普遍早婚,許多女童未完成小學教育便已輟學。為鼓勵東鄉的家長支持女童接受教育,成長希望基金會於2017年在當地開展「春蕾」助學計劃,資助東鄉女童重返校園,協助她們透過教育改變自己的命運。
於2018-2019學年,基金會將計劃擴展至當地輟學及失學之男童,資助共140名東鄉男、女童繼續升學。
新學年將至,我們的目標是籌集港幣350,000元,以支持200名8至16歲的東鄉學童於來年繼續接受教育。
