Resilience & Mental Health Education for Left-Behind Children
Program Details & Highlights
Shining Star is a local NGO that helps provide quality mental health and enrichment services to rural students. Lack of access to quality education resources and an absence of parental involvement result in lower levels of social and emotional learning
development. This issue was identified by the Stanford Rural Education and Action Program (REAP) as a large challenge to social stability in China.
They seek to develop fundraising channels in order to continuously provide high
quality programs that benefit left behind children in the community. Students will organize a mental health workshop, join a resilience camp with
local children, and execute lesson plans as well as delivering resilience training to help Shining Star improve their curriculum.
Shining Star is a local NGO registered in the Civil Affairs Bureau of Panyu District, Guangzhou with the mission of providing quality mental health and enrichment
services to rural students. In order to give back to society, Shining Star is driven by a vision to see students grow up to be healthy and happy, and to convey love and hope.
