As a non-governmental organization, Jiaozuo Financial Aid Association takes “building a loving platform for the development of teenager” as its mission. It is in Jiaozuo, Henan.
Due to a shortage of funding and human resources, it’s difficult for Jiaozuo Education Aid Association to step up to a new level. But in 2012, we heard about TFish and sent them our application. With the help of the TFish staff, our budget was accepted and we received 2994RMB in 2013.
The development of our organization requires full-time staff to maintain the operation of our project. Therefore, the salary of our staff soon became another stumbling block in the development of our organization.
Our president contacted TFish again and presented our organization’s development plan and ideas. We then applied to the fund for more money. Unexpectedly, the foundation in the USA approved our plan in a week. The Association finally had its first staff meeting on May 10, 2013.
TFish showed us great support in our development, which in turn has greatly promoted the growth of our grass roots NGO in these aspects: 1) our finances became more transparent; 2) the salary of our staff has been guaranteed. Our organization will undoubtedly be a model in our society of an acceptable salary for full-time staff.
We hope the idea of TFish will be accepted by more organizations and people and we hope TFish continues to develop and expand!
