For 15 years, EGRC has empowered young women from rural regions of Western China to escape poverty through education. Our sponsorship programs, which provide these young women with the funds to attend high school and university, have always been about more than just financial support. Our goal is to empower these young women to become the future leaders that China and the world needs. To accomplish this, EGRC provides students and alumni of the program with a variety of career and training opportunities, and extensive moral support. We believe this careful attention to each young woman’s development is the key to our success, with students boasting a graduation rate of above 99%.
