EXCITING NEWS! Last week, Shining Star Organization received its registration certificate from the local Civil Affairs Bureau. This is a moment we have been looking forward to for several years. Shining Star’s founding members, including founding director Tan Yuan (“Summer”), are all previous recipients of CWEF’s High School Scholarship program. They were also blessed through their participation in the REACH student development program and various CWEF Service Learning activities over the years. CWEF’s staff and volunteers have given much time, energy and love to these young women.
Now, Summer and the 60+ volunteer members of Shining Star will be reaching out in love and service to ‘left-behind’ children in rural Guangdong province through the GROW program. CWEF will be providing support and start-up funding to Shining Star, made possible through generous donations from members of the community at Concordia International School Shanghai. It is an honor to walk with these young women as they step out in service, and we thank God for giving us the opportunity to witness this wonderful fruit of the work He has given us to do.
Support Shining Star’s work with a gift to the GROW program.
