We have a new partner organization -- Changing Young Lives Foundation, a Hong Kong registered charity striving to identify underprivileged children, youths and their families in Hong Kong and mainland China and change their lives for the better. We are supporting their project to supply heat for schools in Qinghai, China.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(via CYLF News Release)
Hong Kong, 10th June 2014 –
Changing Young Lives Foundation (CYLF) is delighted to announce its collaboration with Transparent Fish Fund. Striving to improve the quality of education for children in impoverished areas of mainland China, CYLF is most grateful to have Transparent Fish Fund’s sponsorship of a heating supply project for Daotanghe Central Boarding School in Qinghai, where the students are desperately in need of heating supply for the winter. This project will equip the school with the necessary heating facilities to provide the students with warm classrooms. The children would otherwise have to study in chilly weather with temperature as low as -30 degree Celsius.
CYLF’s Executive Director Tammy Leung says, “We depend solely on public support and donations, by choice, we do not receive government subvention so as to remain flexible in developing our programmes to meet the imminent needs of children and youth, both in Hong Kong and the mainland. The support of Transparent Fish Fund is most significant to help us maintain and develop our services”.
Changing Young Lives Foundation is one of the few first charities working in Qinghai and over the decade has supported the continuous development of 18 primary and secondary schools in terms of school reconstruction, building of dormitory, canteen and solar bathroom, clean water supply, healthcare and hygiene improvement, as well as teacher training and medical support.
Together with our support to 3 other project schools in Guangxi and Gansu, we endeavour to help enhance the learning, boarding and teaching environment in the deprived rural regions of mainland China. CYLF is proud to become a trustworthy partner of Transparent Fish Fund which emphasizes the transparency and accountability of the organizations it supports, and supports the capacity building of selected NGOs. We look forward to a continuous partnership in building a better future for children in the mainland.
