BENEFITING: World Education, Inc.

THE STORY:

 

Dandelion School is the only non-profit middle school for migrant children in Beijing. Right now, children of migrant workers cannot enter the public school system. Non-profit schools like Dandelion are the only places these children can receive an education. In the upcoming year, Dandelion faces a major challenge: relocation. 

With government support, we are building a new, safer campus for our kids. Spanning 11,300 square meters, this campus will feature brand new classrooms and facilities. We have the space, a construction plan, and a company that will build our new school. But we still have a long way to go! 

We are reaching out to you: our friends, volunteers, and benefactors to help us raise the money to build one of the new classrooms. Every dollar you donate will go towards the "Volunteer Family Classroom," named in honor of our benefactors. Your contribution will help us secure a better, brighter future for our young Dandelions. 

Thank you!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"In summer 2013, I worked with the staff and students at Dandelion Middle School as a part of the DukeEngage team. The experience showed me what tireless dedication looks like. I saw teachers up at 7 o’ clock in the morning and staying till 10 o’ clock at night working on problems and taking long walks around the school campus to listen to individual students. They were in loco parentis in every sense of the word: lecturing students about the merits of cooperation and comforting students with personal problems. I've made precious friendships with some truly generous people here. Some are educators and mentors that I want to emulate.  Everyone at the school is working hard for the common goal of a better future for each child.  In face of such determination, I momentarily forget the fragility of their educational situation." - Christina He, Duke University '15
