HandsOn Shanghai, for the past year been working with various members of Shanghai to fully understand and develop programming to address the needs of Shanghai’s 400,000 migrant school children who are studying in one of the areas 350+ migrant schools.
For many, attending privately run migrant schools has long been their only choice as: Fees at Shanghai public schools are seen as too high the schools are often located farther from home than migrant schools
The Children prefer studying with other migrant children With this in mind, Hands on Shanghai has begun working with several schools (Pudong and Puxi) to implement holistic programs to improve the conditions within these schools:
1. Improve infrastructure (painting, library donation, sports equipment)
2. Mentoring programs (1-on-1 partnerships between volunteer and tutor)
3. Education and Tutoring (English, math, and science tutoring)
4. Club programs (Sports clubs, music clubs, and art clubs)
