RCEF is a 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 the Netherlands, Hong Kong, and the United States. 

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 works to share methods and experiences with other organizations.
