Project Eden- Guangdong Province

Project Eden has really grown this past 6 months.  In August more children needing our support joined Eden and in September, as part of our plan to expand the support for the Qinghai girls’ vocational development, another 4 girls came down to attend the local school and to learn intensive Chinese. In total, we now have 17 children being cared for in a safe and caring environment. The children have adjusted really well to life in a new and very different province.  The environment at Eden has helped a lot with this adjustment, living in a family and country setting. They are all doing very well at school, getting good reports from the teachers and taking part in sports activities. The girls from Qinghai need help with their homework, as all subjects are taught through Chinese.

The group was also thrilled to receive a second-hand van at Eden.  It seats seven people and can also be used to carry goods. Previous to this, we depended on public transport for getting around and had no means to deal with an emergency if it arose. A big thank you to our two very generous sponsors from Australia, who donated funds to purchase the van (see photo!).

We had our first opportunity to sell bracelets made by the girls, at the Treasures of Hope shop birthday celebration in September. The bracelets generated great interest and we plan to continue to develop this as potential for income in the future.

Finally, we want to give special thanks to two new  China based project sponsors who have embraced Project Eden.  Greg and his team of volunteers who will organize an annual midnight charity race in Shenzhen.  Greg’s work covers 50% of the total budget for our foster family program.  AWESOME!!! Also Aaron and his team from Treasures of Hope in Dongguan who will be giving part of the monthly profits from his business to Eden every quarter.  This is truly wonderful.

OTHER THANK YOU’s

The rest of Eden’s budget is made up of sponsors and donors from around the world who share with us a real desire to help kids.  The girls from Qinghai are supported through sponsors and supporters as part of the Seng Girls Home operational budget.  If you are one of those who support either Project Eden or these girls, then we thank you for your generosity.  Eden is moving from strength to strength and bringing hope to all these kids in incredible ways.  They are indeed lucky but, more importantly, are making incredible progress in their confidence and education.  It is so encouraging and heartwarming to see the impact your continued support has on the lives of these children. Thank you.
