At the initial stage of JERI’s establishment, JERI has been actively engaged in the social voluntary projects, supporting vulnerable groups and carrying out educational volunteer activities. Since March, 2017, JERI has voluntarily been committed to the teaching of Spoken English to one of the Early Childhood Education classes for the Rural Women Practical Skills Training School, with students from the rural area of Guangxi, Hunan provinces, etc.
Located in the
Changping District of Beijing and established in October 1998, the Rural Women Practical
Skills Training School is a charitable, not-for-profit and non-degree training
school that aims to help rural women in China. The funds with
which the School operates mainly comes from donations from individuals,
institutes, companies, social organizations and foundations home and abroad.
In the “Rural
Women Study Grant Programme”, the School provides free training courses, which
usually last 1-3 months, to young women from poor rural families who dropped
out of school and wanted to learn practical skills to making a living. The
courses include computer operation, sewing machine operation, hair-dressing
skills, restaurant services, and early childhood care.
