Concordia Welfare and Education Foundation is a Hong Kong based non-profit organization founded by Lutheran Christians and dedicated to improving the lives of impoverished rural communities in Asia through education and service. We work primarily in the Yunnan, Sichuan, and Guangdong Provinces of China, but also have an offices in Cambodia, Hong Kong, and Shanghai.
We partner with local communities, organizations and governments to identify sources of poverty and implement programs in the areas of education and community health.
Our focus is centered on scholarships for high school and university students, women's leadership education seminars, English trainings for teachers, health kits for elementary and middle school students, clean water projects and subsequent village health trainings, and providing school resource materials.
We believe that education creates opportunities for people to change their lives and create a new future for themselves and their communities.
