Ling Cha Ce’s changed life through CCAI’s One-on-One Education Initiative

Help us teach orphans like Ling Cha Ce in China new life skills and increase self-confidence by supporting CCAI’s One-On-One Education Initiative program! 

Ling Cha Ce is a focused child who is terribly afraid of trying new things and lacks confidence.  When confronted with a new task, she fears failure.  Cha Ce prefers to walk away and refuse to try to complete the job.   

CCAI’s One-On-One Education Initiative seeks to help children like Ling Cha Ce gain confidence and learn new skills.  Cha Ce joined our baking class to learn how to make Chinese pastries.  At first, she encountered some unique challenges in mastering the ovens and pastry materials.  Teachers could see the frustration in Cha Ce’s eyes as she was once again afraid of failure and felt uneasy about her baking skills.   

With encouragement and one-on-one help from her teachers, Ling Cha Ce learned to shorten her baking time and ferment her bread appropriately.  She successfully made the best egg tarts and bread in her class!  Her teacher and classmates praised her efforts, and Cha Ce’s frustration turned to a smile of joy!   

Over time, Cha Ce’s performance improved even more, and now she happily asks her teachers, “Let me try!  I can do it!” Baking has not only taught Cha Ce patience, but she is also more confident when it comes to trying new skills!   

Help us teach orphans in China new life skills and increase self-confidence by supporting CCAI’s One-On-One Education Initiative program!  With a sponsorship of only $50 a month, YOU can change the life of a child!!  We currently have 15 older children who need your support! 

CCAI’s charity program will send you quarterly updates about your child and you can cheer a precious orphan on toward success!  Read more stories like Ling Cha Ce’s!

Due to the worldwide pandemic, in March 2020, CCAI introduced the Education Fund to help support our One-on-One Education Initiative, hiring special education teachers to support Jiujiang Orphanage and help teach their children who are physically disabled and unable to attend school with their peers. 

Since 2020, the One-on-One Education Initiative Has: 

-Provided 29 children with 1-on-1 tutoring; 

-Introduced 12 children to the joy of sports; 

-Helped 14 children unlock their artistic potential; 

-Furnished accessible computer labs, music rooms, and sports equipment; 

-Redefined what education and child care should look like for children with disabilities still living in orphanages
