RCEF is an international non-profit organization dedicated to promoting education for people in rural China that empowers them to improve their lives and communities. We support rural educators to develop teaching methods and curriculum in line with our mission.
RCEF was founded in 2005 by three young researchers of Chinese descent from Holland, Hong Kong, and the United States. It is registered as a 501(c)(3) public charity in the United States and donations are tax-deductible in the U.S.
In 2007, RCEF won the prestigious Echoing Green Fellowship for the "world's best emerging social change entrepreneurs” and established a school-based curriculum development and teacher coaching program in Shanxi Province supported by the Chen Yet-Sen Family Foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative, the Tiger Woods Foundation, The Global Fund for Children, and more.
RCEF strives for financial transparency and works to share methods and experiences with other organizations. On our Publications & Resources page, you will find RCEF's archive of monthly newsletters, curriculum handbooks, reports, and a list of organizations and information sources in the field of rural Chinese education. Feel free to contact us with any questions or comments!
