Ever since Jinde Charities was founded in 1997, scholarships have been an important part of our work. Through the end of 2011, we have helped 8,194 low-income students, including some who receive Jinde’s help on an ongoing basis. In recent years, the state has been providing nine years of compulsory education. Last year, Jinde supplemented this public service on the primary and secondary levels with a focus on living expenses of students. Most recipients were students from ethnic minorities and those living in remote mountainous areas. Generally speaking, even though education is a fundamental step toward alleviate a family’s poverty and backwardness, the poorer the families are, the less priority they will place on their children’s education.
