Shin Shin Educational Foundation (Shin Shin) was originally founded in 1997 by a small group of overseas Chinese in San Francisco Bay Area. On October 1, 1999, Shin Shin was officially registered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in California USA.
Since then, Shin Shin has been providing resources, long term care, love and services to construct or renovate elementary schools in the remote, rural and despondent regions of China. Our mission is to improve their learning environment, and therefore to promote balanced development of urban and rural education in China.
After more than ten years of effort and development, Shin Shin now has hundreds of volunteers and thousands of donors, among them celebrities in politics and businesses, well-known community leaders, and successful professionals in high-tech industries, management teams, finances, and laws, etc. In the local overseas community, Shin Shin has established a good reputation and continued in making positive impacts, gradually winning more understanding and recognition from local mainstream societies.
