OCEF Donor Newsflash
Dear friends of OCEF:
On the eve of a brand-new year, OCEF would like to take this opportunity to
extend to you our sincere gratitude and best holiday wishes. Over the past
two decades, OCEF was able to offer a helping hand to countless rural
students and rural schools in need, all of which was made possible only by
your generosity and that of others like you. We hope you and your family
find 2015 a wondrous, prosperous year!
The One-on-One Sponsorship is again a hot hit among our programs this year.
At this time, there are only 137 elementary school students, 228 junior high
school students and 505 senior high school students remaining on the list
to be sponsored. It takes only $100 to sponsor an elementary school student
for a year, $150 for a junior high school student, and $350 for a senior
high student. A gift of financial aid is a long-lasting legacy, and there is
no better way to give in this season of giving. Please visit the project
webpage and help a student return to school.
为建校奔跑/Run for a New School
On November 23, 11 runners from all over the world participated in a half-
marathon charitable event held at Hong Kong Disneyland on behalf of OCEF.
They were running to raise funds for a building expansion project at
Chengzhuang Elementary School in Dingtao County, Shandong Province. To date,
a total of 157,411 RMB has been collected, with 342,589 RMB remaining to
reach the final goal. We hope more people will join the effort to help the
students there and make their dream come true soon!
There are currently over 300 students at Chengzhuang Elementary School. The
existing school building is not enough to meet the needs of the student body
, and often three students have to share a desk for two. There is no
dormitory at the school, and all students and teachers, except three
teachers who live too far away, have to commute daily to school from the
nearby villages. Although Shandong is a coastal province, Dingtao is a well-
known impoverished area. Zhuo Yunbao, then chairman of OCEF’s China Affairs
Committee, visited the school in 2013 and determined it was in critical
need for financial assistance. About 800,000 RMB is needed to expand the
school building, out of which OCEF will provide 500,000RMB. The rest of the
funds will be raised locally. OCEF will also help monitor the construction
work to ensure quality and compliance to the appropriate standards.
网络募书进度/Online Book Donation
OCEF launched the Online Book Donation program in August 2013. The program
carefully picks out books for each school according to the age group and
size of its student population and compiles a wish list on a bookseller’s
website. Donors need only to log onto the website and select books from the
wish list to donate. The books will then be delivered directly to the school
. Pictured above are some of the schools and the kids who have received
books from online donation.
Since its commencement, the program has received overwhelming support. So
far more than 3,500 books have been delivered to over 1,500 students in 10
rural schools. Donation for the 11th school, the Dawu School for the Hearing
Impaired in Hubei Province, will be kicking off soon, and we welcome your
continued participation (further information).
特殊项目成果展示（一）/Report on Special Projects (Part 1)
Compiled by Zhuo Yunbao; translated by Xu Hanqing; edited by Zhang Jing
一、供暖项目/1. Heating Project
Huining County, in the northwestern province of Gansu, is situated amid
towering mountains and steep canyons. Mother nature has been very tough on
the people living the arid region, which suffers from severe drought in most
years. This little county, however, is known for the dedication of its
impoverished population to education, and for the excellent performance of
its students in the national college entrance examinations. Located in the
northern portion of the county, Touzhaizi Central Elementary School has a
total of 550 students in 12 classes, 485 of whom are from impoverished
households. During the winter, the school used to rely on briquette stoves
for heating, which are not only ineffective but also dangerous and unhealthy
. In November 2013, OCEF provided 55,000 RMB to install a modern heating
system for the dining hall, dormitories, and the library.
二、食堂设备项目/2. Cafeteria Equipment Project
Pingjiang County in Hunan Province is an under-developed rural area
surrounded by mountains. Donggang Elementary School in that county has a
student body of more than 300 and a staff of 13, including the teachers. The
students come from seven villages in the vicinity. Due to the crippling
poverty, the vast majority of their parents have been forced to leave their
hometown to seek work in big cities. Since all students have their lunch at
school, the staff had raised enough funds to build a dining hall, but it was
so poorly equipped that the students had nowhere to sit during lunch. In
2013, OCEF raised 19,520 RMB and bought brand-new tables, chairs, and other
essential equipment for the dining hall.
三、课桌椅项目/3. Desk and Chair Project
Hongshui Township Central Elementary School is located on the mountainous
northern outskirts of Rongshui Miao Autonomous County in Guangxi Zhuang
Autonomous Region. The school has a staff of 32 and a student body of 402,
of whom 295 are boarding students from far-flung villages. The school
suffered from a serious shortage of proper classroom furniture, and the
classrooms were full of old tables and chairs of various shapes, sizes, and
heights. In 2013, OCEF bought 200 sets of desks and chairs for the children
with 29,250 RMB.
