Overseas China Education Foundation (OCEF) was founded in 1992, and it is recognized as a 501(c)(3) charity by IRS (Federal tax ID: 76-0680540.) OCEF is a non-political, non-religious, non-governmental and independent organization. The sole mission of OCEF is to help underprivileged children in impoverished rural areas of China receive education and improve the quality of education in rural China. Operated primarily by unpaid volunteers, OCEF keeps operational costs minimal. In the past 27 years, OCEF’s operating expenses have been under 5% of the donation income.

OCEF has developed comprehensive operational procedures that ensure all OCEF funds are distributed diligently and transparently. OCEF welcomes its volunteers and donors to get involved with the various operations of the foundation, including visiting the schools that it supports.

OCEF Programs:

Financial Aid Program

In China, despite substantial economic growth in recent years, there are still areas where K-12 school students drop out of schools due to severe financial hardship.  Every $100, $150 or $350 can support one primary school, middle school or high school student to return to classroom, or pay for partial school-related expenses for these disadvantaged kids.

Library Program

By purchasing age-appropriate books, OCEF has been establishing libraries for schools in the remote areas. Each library costs only $1,000.

 It has come to OCEF’s attention that books are not enough without an inspiring teacher who is able to cultivate students’ enthusiasm in reading.  Therefore, the library program has been focusing on motivating teachers, as well as providing them with tools to instill into their students the love for reading.  

Financial Support to Teachers

The goal of this project is to offer financial assistance to teachers in rural areas who are struggling with poverty, as well as to train and guide them and help them further improve their teaching skills.

Special Program

Special Program focuses on infrastructure improvements and provision of facilities, and at the same time explore new ideas.

OCEF works with schools by donating desks, chairs, school supplies and physical education equipment; renovating school buildings and dining facilities; hardening the playground; improving quality of student lunches; establishing multi-media online classes; and digging wells.

Internet School

OCEF Internet School program utilizes existing network infrastructure of the rural schools, makes necessary enhancement to the hardware, and organizes the oversea talents to teach online courses that the local schools are not able to offer; in addition, it also offers a variety of teaching and learning activities such as teacher training. 

English, Biology, Math, Drawing, and Music classes have been offered and achieved great success.  

Summer Teaching Camp

The scarcity of the education resources in the impoverished rural regions has long been a problem: the shortage of teachers, scope limitation, and outdated teaching method have become obstacles to basic education.  Facing these challenges, OCEF initiated the summer teaching camp and recruited overseas volunteers to serve as camp tutors at select schools.  The volunteers interact with local students and teachers on subjects related to reading, stimulate the students' interests in reading, and help them develop the right reading habit. By broadening the students' horizon and enhancing their ability to think independently, the program seeks to help accomplish the underlying purposes of basic education.
