What can we possibly say about ZURU TOYS that would be adequate in just a few sentences. Starting this year, ZURU fund 50% of the total budget of our Vocational School Scholarship Program, and MY FIRST JOB programs in China – bringing hope to over 300 girls a year. ZURU is a world famous family business with origins all the way back to New Zealand. With offices all over the world, ZURU have their manufacturing base in Shenzhen China and for that reason were passionate about ways to give back to China. Our special thanks to Anna Mowbray and family, Hannah Leeming, and Irene He Yizhen for their support.
Huaifeng's home is on a remote hillside, and it takes her more than an hour of walking before she can ride a bus to school. Her mother left them when she was only one year old, while her father is working as a security guard in another city. She lives with her brother and her grandparents.
