We at the Little Fir Foundation want to give the talented children in China who otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to higher education a chance - a chance not only to have an education, but also to succeed in life.
We provide tuition assistance to selected financially underprivileged children in China, also fund schools and educational institutions on programs that would enhance the quality of education in rural China. We select students from elementary school level and support them all the way through college. What’s more important, in addition to the monetary support, we will develop a community that provides one-on-one mentoring to all grant recipients. We want to be their mentors, to guide them when they are lost, to be there when they need someone to turn to, to encourage them on their journey to success.
