The Agape Educational Assistance program (AEA) provides educational sponsorship to impoverished students and disaster relief in poor areas of western China. Sponsoring an impoverished student costs as little as $2 to $3 a day. This minor contribution can give opportunity, love and hope to a helpless Chinese student. It may totally transform his or her life.
AEA currently has programs in three southwestern provinces: Sichuan, Chongqing, and Shaanxi. Included in the programs are:
- Agape Sponsorships that help students with tuition and living expenses. Sponsorships range from $540 a year for elementary to middle school students and $720 per year for high school students. You can transform a child’s life by giving as little as $45 a month. If interested in supporting an impoverished Chinese youth, please don’t hesitate to fill out the Sponsorship Application Form.
- Teacher Training that introduces teachers in China to new advanced educational ideas and methods.
Students are chosen to receive support through a recommendation process, followed by in home visits by Agape Way volunteers on the ground in China.
Once a student is enrolled in the AEA, it is the mission of Agape Way to continue supporting them for as long as they remain in school, even if donors decide to discontinue their support.
Donors can choose form a relationship with a student they sponsor. Agape Way can foster communication between sponsors and students, and donors can request to visit China on the annual trip.
If you are interested in making a huge difference in a child’s life, please consider donating or participating in AEA program. Help us share the love of God and salvation of Christ to rural communities in western China.
