Education: The fishing metaphor: teach them to fish VS give them a fish
Cornerstone believes that education is vital to the sustainable development of China. In the past, Cornerstone rebuilt about 90 primary and secondary schools in rural areas. Up to now, we have already subsidised over twenty thousand students. The education policy of our country is now changed, we hope students from low-income families with outstanding conduct and academic achievement can continue their studies and receive higher education. These students can become financially independent after graduation. They are able to improve their family's living condition and contribute to the community.
Strive for Excellence
Besides caring for students' education opportunities, Cornerstone also concerns about the quality of teachers in schools. We support passionate teachers to visit Hong Kong. They can exchange with local educators on teaching philosophy and methods so as to improve teaching qualities.
