综合项目

助学金项目直接向贫困初中、小学生发放人民币现金,此资助可用于学生的书本费、学杂费及其它学习用品费用,也可以包括学生的部分生活费用。
奖学金项目主要资助最贫困地区的高中生。评审准则以学生的贫困程度为主,以学习状况(包括学习成绩,进步程度,求学上进精神)为辅助标准。
图书项目始于2003年。从项目建立以来,通过基金会在中国农村的义工网络,我们联系并帮助极需图书的学校及时申请资助,并保证捐赠的图书得到充分利用。
建校项目,旨在改善或重建中国贫困地区乡村小学的危房校舍,以及达不到最基本要求的校舍,给更多贫困地区学童一个良好的学习环境。

多方位资助,综合提高乡村教育质量,如改善学校硬 件、培训当地教师、补助学生、推广阅读项目、健康项目等一系列综合资助。

Hike4Kids助学活动

9月27日, OCEF北加分会在东湾Hayward市的Garin Park举办了脚步走出的希望——Hike4Kids户外助学慈善活动。此次活动共有约190名湾区居民参加。活动当日风和日丽,OCEF十几位义工早早来到公园准备好介绍中国乡村教育状况的图片资料,向参与活动的湾区居民介绍基金会近期的助学工作与成就。

Garin Park的几座山峰海拔不高,但颇为陡峭,合影后,100多位登山者在山脊上形成一条长龙,蔚为壮观。人们一边登山,一边攀谈,并在顶峰眺望海天一色的海湾美景,心旷神怡。登顶人群中既有白发苍苍、年近七旬的老者,又有襁褓中仅九个月大的婴儿。山路蜿蜒一周,恰好五公里长,这正是许多中国山区贫困学童的每日坎坷求学之路的距离,而他们却每日要往返一次,如此辛苦却依然有很多孩子因贫困而失学。

登山之后,人们虽然劳累但兴致高昂,在公园烧烤区分享着彼此带来的美食,组织者也当场烹饪美味的烤肉。简单的午餐之後,一些朋友意犹未尽,再次组织人马登山,并相约明年继续支持参与此户外慈善助学活动。这次登山助学活动不仅是收获了友谊与关注,一位常年捐款人更当场留下五千美元支票捐助乡村教育。

OCEF北加分会感谢Tong You Family Foundation赞助此次活动。此家庭基金会常年关注失学问题,表示如果此活动有超过100人参加,每多一人就多捐赠100美元。因此,190名登山者帮助OCEF募得9,000美元。此外感谢湾区华人长跑会(BURN)的朋友们协助了此次登山助学活动。 北加分会成立已逾十年,多年来通过图片展、户外慈善运动等形式唤起湾区华人社区对大陆贫困学童的关注。目前此次Hike4Kids活动,以及10月5日的San José半程马拉松Run4Kids活动,已合计为OCEF筹集善款近五万美元。

Hike4Kids: An OCEF-Sponsored Charity Event

On September 27, OCEF Northern California Chapter organized the charity event “Hike4Kids” in Garin Park, Hayward, and about 190 bay area residents participated. It turned out to be a beautiful day, and OCEF volunteers arrived very early to set up displays about rural education in China and recent works and accomplishments of OCEF for the participants.

The mountains in the park are not very high in altitude, but the trails are steep. After a quick snapshot, a procession of more than 100 climbers snaked up the ridge in a heart-warming display of solidarity. Among them were grey-haired seniors almost 70 years of age as well as kids as young as nine months old. People chatted while climbing up, and enjoyed the spectacular view once they got to the summit. The hike ran a total of five kilometers, roughly the distance many rural kids in China have to travel each day to get to school. The daily journey is not keeping them out of school, but unfortunately for many of them, poverty is.

Tired but no less excited, the participants enjoyed a barbecue and potluck lunch, and made their pledges to see one another again next year at this event. Some of them, with more energy to spare, headed right back to the trails after lunch. It was more than enthusiasm and companionship that were on display that day, as one of our regular donors wrote a $5,000 check on the spot to support our cause.

Special thanks go to the Tong You Family Foundation for its generous support for this event. With children dropping out of school as one of its focal issues, the Tong You Family Foundation pledged to donate $100 for each participant beyond the first 100. As a result, the 190 climbers helped OCEF raise $9,000 from this source alone. In addition, we would like to thank our friends at BURN for their help in organizing the event. Since it was founded over a decade ago, OCEF Northern California Chapter has been working tirelessly in the bay area to put the spotlight in rural kids in China. Between Hike4Kids and the Run4Kids event organized during the half marathon in San José on October 5, nearly $50K has been raised for our cause.

 

OCEF协调员访谈

【编者按】协调员是OCEF分布在全国各个资助点的本地联络人,他们有的是学校老师,有的是本地的公务员,也有的是当地义工。OCEF在该地区项目的联络跟进和反馈都需要协调员来协助帮忙,特别是每年助学金项目的学生申请、家访、发款等。

都小桂从2006年开始在四川简阳武庙九年义务教育学校做代课老师,现在在幼儿园做幼儿园老师,09年开始担任OCEF的协调员。作为OCEF的协调员,都老师主要负责家访、发款、收集各种信息、协调走访。由于她工作的幼儿园师资不足,老师不能轻易离岗,她只能利用节假日为OCEF工作。具体花了多少时间,她自己也说不清。她坚持家访每位新申请的学生。路好的,尽量找辆车;路不好的,只能自己走路,或者由丈夫开摩托车带去。近的学生一天能走访2-3个,远的一天只能走访一个,而且有时候联系几次都联系不上。

都老师认为简阳的学生上学面临的最大问题是留守儿童问题,他们由爷爷奶奶抚养,老幼之间的沟通存在很大困难。之前,学校尝试建立了一个留守儿童之家,配备了图书室和电视等。都老师在和这些留守儿童沟通交流的过程中感觉到,这些孩子缺少的不是物质条件,而是从心理和生理上与父母的接触陪伴。他们本能地排斥这样的留守生活,却表现出若无其事的漠然。

OCEF的资助虽然不能根本上解决这些孩子面临的问题,但是对一些家境贫困的孩子还是非常有帮助的。简阳的贫富悬殊非常大,几百元对一个贫困家庭来说可以做很多事情,家长们很感动,每次发款时都能看到家长们真挚的表情。但学生们的这种感恩就很少,一方面是学校对这块的感恩教育很少触及,另外一方面是孩子们与父母的链接稀少,父母关爱的缺失是学校无力能改变的。

都老师认为OCEF与其他慈善机构很不同。她时常会接到附近企业、个人的捐助电话,但很少接受他们的资助。曾经有一个车友队捐了3000元给学校买体育器材,但要求受助学生举行捐助仪式,还要求学校邀请镇里的领导和媒体来拍照等等……这些让老师们觉得很不舒服,觉得他们太注重形式了。还有一次,一个基金会带来很多旧衣服,一家家送给学生,还拍照,也让都老师感觉不舒服—这样的行为太伤害孩子们的自尊了。而OCEF去年融小姐和最近林女士来走访,都能让老师们感受到他们发自内心的对学校和学生的真挚关心,而不是简单的走形式、拍照片。两相对比,都老师心里最认可OCEF。

Interview with an OCEF Coordinator

[Editor’s note] Coordinators are the local points of contact for OCEF at sponsored sites scattered all over China. Some of them are teachers, some civil servants, and others local volunteers. All efforts in follow-up and feedback on OCEF’s local programs require assistance from the coordinators, especially in student applications, home visits and fund distribution.

Du Xiaogui began her career in rural education as a substitute teacher at Wumiao School in Jianyang, Sichuan, in 2006 and now teaches at a kindergarten. An OCEF coordinator since 2009, her main duties include visiting student families, distributing funds, and gathering information. She can only work for OCEF during holidays and school breaks, as she keeps a fulltime schedule on her job. Still, she has spent countless days for OCEF.

Teacher Du insists on interviewing and visiting every new applicant at his/her home. Some of the locations are accessible by automobile, but many of them can be reached only on foot or by motorcycle, driven by her husband. For those who live closer to her, she is able to meet with two or three kids a day. In other cases, it may take her a whole day to visit one. Sometimes, it takes several tries just to get in touch with the students and their families.

In Teacher Du’s eyes, the biggest issue facing rural education in Jianyang has to do with children of parents who left home to seek opportunities elsewhere. The children usually end up staying with their grandparents, with whom they have a major gap in communication. Previously, her school tried to establish an activity center for these “left-behind” children, complete with a library and a TV set. What Teacher Du discovered through her experience is that what these children really long for is not tangible goods but interaction with their parents, physical as well as mental. They hate living in that situation but they hide it with feigned indifference.

Financial aid from OCEF will not resolve this complex problem, but it helps with those children whose families are particularly poverty-stricken. Income disparity is huge in Jianyang, and a few hundred RMB yuan can make a real difference for some families. Teacher Du sees the sincere gratitude from the guardians but does not always sense the appreciation from the kids. They are not taught how to appreciate in school, she says, but the missing affection from their parents is a more fundamental issue that the school can do little about.

Teacher Du sees OCEF in a very different light from many other charity organizations. She is often contacted by potential donors, institutional or individual, but rarely accepts their donations. She recalls several past occasions where donations from local groups turned more into photo opportunities for the donors, or the donations came at the expense of the students’ self-esteem, all of which left the teachers feeling very uncomfortable. In contrast, OCEF and its volunteers come across to Teacher Du and her colleagues with their genuine concern and care for the kids. In her heart and mind, Teacher Du identified the most with OCEF.

Join the OCEF Team!

OCEF welcomes you to the OCEF 5-km Challenge!

Five kilometers amount to the distance that many rural children in China have to cover each day to get to school. This fall, we invite you to join us in an outdoor charity event: The OCEF 5-km Challenge—Walk 10,000 Miles, Donate 10,000 Books! Besides books for designated schools, all funds raised through the event will be used on school aid programs in rural China, including scholarships, teacher training, and renovation of school facilities, and donors will be updated periodically. So far more than 300 of our friends have accepted this challenge. We would like to take this opportunity to call on all donors and volunteers to join us.

This is how it works: Within seven days of receiving the challenge, complete five kilometers of outdoor activities, or donate $20 or three books. Then, share your pictures and challenge five more people.

We invite our friends all over the world to join the OCEF team: pick your favorite outdoor activity, run, hike, walk or bike for the kids, promote the 5-km Challenge, campaign for our cause, and raise $500 or more for OCEF. In 2013, Kenny Cheung participated in the New York Marathon and raised over $1,600 from his friends to set up a library for Qiaotou Elementary in Shuguang Township, Guangnan County, Yunnan Province. Many others are also working hard for the foundation, and for the kids. Please join us in challenging yourself, and showcase the beauty of outdoor sports—and the beauty of philanthropy!
