We are currently fundraising for:

1. Teaching Materials for the Migrant Children at Stepping Stones’ Programmes in China

Stepping Stones runs various programmes for migrant children in China, focussing on their education, health and welfare. They have asked CHW to sponsor teaching materials for the next semester, which starts in February 2016. The teaching materials include stationery, text books, paper, folders and more. The total amount needed is £797.00.

We are so grateful to CHW’s supporters who sponsored the educational materials for the semester starting in September. More information about last semester’s appeal is here and contributions can still be made through that page. If you are able to support this project by making a contribution, it would help to enable these children to get the education they need and deserve. Thank you for making a difference!

2. Tutoring and Mentoring Programme run by Refugiu, for Disadvantaged Children in Romania

Refugiu in Romania runs a tutoring and mentoring programme for very disadvantaged children and teenagers in the village of Tarlungeni in Romania. Its regular tutoring sessions, and other assistance with healthcare and social needs, have seen the children make great progress in school. Help is needed to keep on running the programme for another school year. It has cost £200 per month to run the tutoring programme, but this will rise to £212.46, if the value of the pound continues to drop. Whilst this is a challenge for us, the children and teenagers are benefitting greatly from the programme and any help during this difficult time will be much appreciated! If you want to support this project, you can make a contribution through our page on GlobalGiving UK.

We will be taking part in GlobalGiving UK’s Little by Little by Little campaign, which starts on 3 April. We will need help to share this project, to be able to raise funds for the tutoring programme. If you would like to volunteer to help, please get in touch, by emailing catherine @

Thank you for supporting these children!
