The Guanlan Scholarship Foundationhas been giving scholarship support to keep village girls in school through high school in a left-behind area of western China since the year 2000. Continued schooling empowers the girls to imagine broader horizons and take advantage of better living and work opportunities beyond small-scale farming, low-paid, insecure, hard labor, or worse. Better educated girls can take better care of themselves and their families and are better able to resist workplace abuses.

The Foundation has an updated website and presence on Facebook, however it needs active posting and blogging to raise interest and become noticed on social media. The Foundation is lead by its founder, Dr. Vilma Seeberg, and has a current enrolment of approximately 40 young village girls, many of whom are rural to urban migrants, where they are undocumented and treated like second-class non-citizens, experience discrimination, poverty, and a second-class education. The scholarship pays for the fees and tuition to graduate from high school, which propels them into a better starting position in the labor market - and gives them the confidence to seek better opportunities and flourish.

The Foundation welcomes also volunteers who can translate from and to Chinese for the scholarship recipients, the Guanlan Sisters.

Mission Statement

Educate girls today and it will create lasting change for the next generation, one girl, one village, multiple generations in left-behind China.

Description

Since 2000, the Foundation has collected funds to support scholarships for over 130 school girls in western China, where their opportunities are extremely limited.
The Foundation has a close relationship with a community-base partner organization in Shaanxi that qualifies up to 10 new Guanlan Sisters based on family need and distributes the scholarship annually.
The Foundation maintains records of each scholarship recipient's family need status and educational attainment. The scholarship recipients report in writing annually how they are progressing through school and what their specific needs are.
Dr. Seeberg, president, and team members of the Foundation visit with the scholarship recipients and their families to understand how their lives are developing, if they are safe, in school, or gainfully employed and otherwise doing well. We alsostay in touch with the Guanlan Sisters on various Chinese language social media platforms.
