New school for children, Sichuan, China

Date Donations
2001 $ 60.000

The school was destroyed by a landslide. We have supported the alliance to help build a school for the poor minority group, the Yi-people.


The Liangshan prefecture is among China’s poorest areas. Lepra is still a problem, and many families suffer due to this illness. The Norwegian Missionary Alliance (Misjons-
alliansen) runs a project to build schools and improve the health situation.

The school project is a joint effort with local authorities in Liangshan.

In addition to offering school, an important task is to convince parents of the importance of sending the children to school.

The school has now become an integrated part of the local life, offering the children a better future.
