Urgent Help Needed Before New Semester Starts in China!

Stepping Stones is based in Shanghai and its projects focus on the educational, health and welfare needs of migrant children in China.

Stepping Stones

Since the beginning of 2015, CHW’s wonderful supporters have been sponsoring teaching materials Stepping Stones’ educational programmes for migrant children. This has been greatly helping the children with their education. Stepping Stones has asked us for help with the teaching materials for this school year too. They have expanded their programmes, meaning that they are now reaching more children and also that they need more help than before. Stepping Stones’ staff and trained volunteers go to migrant schools and centres to give lessons and extra support. Whilst the total needed for the whole year is now £2,390, we would like to raise the amount needed for the second semester as soon as possible which begins in February. We need to raise the funds by January so there is time to buy all the items. The total needed for the second semester is £797. A further breakdown of the items is below.

If you would like to make a donation to help with teaching materials for the children, you can make a donation via Paypal here:

A huge thank you to Lisa’s Restautant for running a stall to support this project during Pitshanger Lane’s Christmas event, “Light Up the Lane”. They raised £312.19. Thank you also to the Rotary Club of Ealing, which donated £100. Both donations are helping to get us towards our goal! If you are able to help, either by sharing this project with others, or by making a contribution, that would be wonderful!
