"We enjoyed meeting the children at the primary school; they were so excited to meet us and show us around ... Grand Circle Foundation should be proud of its involvement there."

Shao Ping Dian Primary School

Located in the village of Shao Ping Dian, just outside of Xian, the Shao Ping Dian Primary School has 180 students, 18 teachers, and 6 classrooms, and students can take classes in Chinese, English, math, music, painting, and sports. Grand Circle Foundation donations have improved the learning environment here by helping to fill the school's need for educational materials and funding upgrades to the building's infrastructure. Recent contributions include new computers, an LCD announcement board, cameras, desks, chairs, playground equipment, musical instruments, and art supplies, along with renovations to classrooms and roads. The Foundation has also helped to cover the school's heating bills in the winter, supplemented teachers' salaries, and provided tuition assistance to low-income students.

In addition to the Foundation's ongoing monetary support, a team of 38 Grand Circle associates based in our China office recently painted the school's windows and doors during a Grand Circle community service project. The team was welcomed not only by teachers and students, but also by members of the local community.
