A review of 2013…another year with plenty of progress

In 2013 CNYTrust continued to inspire, education and inform – all whilst having a great time. Here are some of the things we achieved in 2013:

  • We sponsored a record number of scholars at Capital Normal University in Beijing to teach at our selected migrant schools
  • Our generous group of donors who sponsor students directly continued to grow – these type of scholarships have a unique impact on our scholars, who have an opportunity to learn, seek advice and build a connection with their donor within the safety net of the CNYTrust
  • Extremely positive feedback from the migrant schools we support in Beijing and the launch of projects to consider new schools in 2014
  • One of our Trustees, Adrian Li, raised over USD 10,000 for CNYTrust through his participation in the Busselton Iron Man event in December 2013

And there is plenty to look forward to in 2014. We are in the final stages of recruiting the Capital Normal University Scholars Class of 2014 and our Cambridge University society looks set to report another very successful 2013-2014 term. Importantly, we are progressing on our 2012/13 initiative that saw the formation of an independent Capital Normal University Committee that will have increasing control over the running of our migrant teaching program.

None of our continued progress could be achieved without the generous support of our donors, our selfless Scholars and all of our volunteers – we owe you all a great deal.

We hope the year of the Horse will bring much more progress and success to the CNYTrust. For any questions, please get in contact with Alex (alex@cnytrust.org).
