China Youth Development Foundation
The China Youth Development Foundation (CYDF) was founded in March 1989 as a non-governmental and non-profit organisation. CYDF focuses upon education in rural areas, technical job-training programs, environmental protection and health. One of the largest and most successful programs is “Project Hope,” which raises funds to build schools in rural impoverished areas, encouraging children to return and complete an elementary school education. CYDF is a successful and wide-reaching organisation that assists many throughout China. Simply by assisting CYDF, many children’s lives can be touched and changed for a better, brighter future.Donate
