Helping People Help Themselves and Others
Blessing Hands helps Chinese students stay in school and reach their potential. We are seeking sponsors to give child school support for our rural students. Our rural Chinese students are often boarding students. They pay for all their school meals, school books, and extra school fees. Chinese high school students need tuition support also, since free public tuition usually ends at the 9th grade in China.
Our students come from poor rural areas of China's Guangxi, Yunnan and Guizhou Provinces. They are usually from single parent homes or live with grandparents because they have absent parents. They are often the "left behind children" of migrant workers. Many are from the minority Buyi, Yao, or Miao people. Blessing Hands also helps poor city students in the city of Manila in the Philippines islands.
When our students graduate from high school, we look for college sponsors to give vocational college and university to fulfill our students' dreams of escaping poverty. Since we have been sponsoring students through our Blessing Hands charity for over 9 years, we have helped over a hundred students receive higher education.
Blessing Hands also serves rural schools by facilitating water purifiers, paying village health assistants, and giving schools libraries or Chinese books. Blessing Hands so helps primary rural schools receive playground equipment, sports supplies, musical instruments and educational supplies. Medical care is given to our students through dental and eyeglass clinics and direct medical care for students with special needs.
We have helped communities with gifts of wheelchairs and plan to help Chinese special education schools secure computers. We help volunteers participate in special summer projects such as summer English camps, water purifier teams, and workshops on various themes. In all our projects, we seek to be a blessing hand to others and encourage our students to be blessing hand volunteers to others.
Blessing Hands is registered as a United States 501(c)3 public charity with the EIN no. of 20-4794276. Your gifts are tax deductible in the United States. However, Blessing Hands is a Chinese Charity helping students in China. Our USA charity headquarters is in Morehead, Kentucky.
Our staff members in China are mostly volunteers and all Chinese. Volunteer teachers select students and make sure they get their school support. Betty Cutts, our founder and volunteer director, works with a volunteer Board of Directors.
Blessing Hands charity is dedicated to nurturing disadvantaged students by providing access to educational opportunities and international friendships.
Most of our Chinese students live in the Guangxi, Yunnan, and Guizhou Provinces of China. We also help Filipino children in Mania.
