Long-distance education website Chinaedu.com, an affiliate of Hongcheng Education Group, has donated eight sets of educational resources to the Spring Rain Project and launched eleven aid stations to assist in education in rural areas of China.
The eleven aid stations are reported to be located in eight middle and primary schools in Jishishan Bao'anzu, Dongxiangzu, and Salazu Autonomous County in Linxiazhou, Gangsu; and in Xinglong County in Chengde, Hebei.
As a public welfare program of the International Scientific Exchange Foundation of China, Spring Rain Project aims to make modern information education accessible to all children and to promote a scientific aid program in middle and primary schools in the less-developed regions. To date, Spring Rain Project has established more than 180 scientific aid stations in ten provinces in China.
As the first long-distance education website offering primary and middle school education, Chinaedu.com has been involved in charity for a long time and according to its website its mission is to have every child in China enjoy the best primary and middle school education.
At present, there are 680,000 middle and primary schools in China, and about 78% of these are located in the rural areas. Very few of these schools have computers.
