PEACH Foundation Taiwan Chapter Charity Profile

While economic prosperity continues to grow in the coastal cities of China, the rise of the wealthy class has widened the gap between the rich and the poor. Of China's total population, roughly one in six people currently live below the subsistence level. Rural farmers earn an average annual income equivalent to only US $80 per person. While annual tuition averages US $100 for a middle-school student, it can run as high as US $200 for a high-school student. Many children with the potential to excel simply cannot afford going beyond elementary school because of their families' economic hardship. Instead, they settle for blue-collar work on the farm or in the cities to help their families.

PEACH Foundation was formed to help children from the poorest parts of China with an opportunity to complete a college education. Our hope is to help break the vicious cycle of poverty and to raise the educational standard of the regions in which the children live.

Created by a group of U.S. citizens in 2001, PEACH Foundation is a California non-profit organization with no political or religious affiliations.
