           We have accepted 10 new students to sponsor in Gansu Province 甘肃省 with the help of volunteer Roy Hu. These students are all ages from primary to high school. Gansu is a poor province in Northwest China where little rain falls.  Their sponsorship will vary in cost. They will need 1800 yuan ($290) for primary students, 225 yuan ($366) for middle school student, and  2700 yuan ($435) for high school students per year. We are encouraging monthly payments through your bank's bill pay to make the payments easier.
Hu Kaixuan has a dream to make a difference in the world. He has 2 sisters and a brother. He is a lower middle school student.

    Gansu, located in the Northwest is one of the Provinces of China that lacks water and good soil. Earthquakes, droughts and famines affect the area. Mining, oil, and mineral extraction are their main sources of income.  The Gobi Desert where China's space program is located is partly in the province. It is among the poorest provinces of China with a per capital income of 12,836 RMB (1,879 USD). 73% of the population is rural.
