Urgent Help Needed Before School 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.

Child at Stepping Stones

Since the beginning of 2015, CHW’s wonderful supporters have been sponsoring teaching materials for one of Stepping Stones’ educational programmes. This has been greatly helping the children with their education. Stepping Stones has asked us for help with the teaching materials this coming 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 first semester as soon as possible (September to February), as this semester begins in less than a month! The total needed for this first 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:



Textbooks – £275.47

Stationery – £153.12

Paper – £153.12

Memory sticks – £92.82

Printing – £76.56

Folders – £45.91

A huge thank you to the Rotary Club of Ealing for donating the first £100 towards this project and to Alex and Paola for further donations. If you are able to help, either by sharing this project with others, or by making a contribution, that would be wonderful!

Please email catherine@ if you would like further information.
