Rural China Education Foundation

RCEF’s mission is to promote education for people in rural China that prepares them to improve their own lives and communities.

Underlying this mission is a commitment to affect the essence of education for rural students – the curriculum and teaching methods. We believe that it is not enough just to increase the number of years students spend in school or to improve the equipment and hardware available to them. Instead, we support teachers in rural areas to provide a different education to rural students, not just more of the same. We believe education should be practical, inclusive, and socially responsible.
