EDUCATION PROJECT

 

our philosophy

At Walden Farm, we place high importance on the transformational power of education. In 2018, we kickstarted our Education Project with the first Summer Camp for Chinese primary school children.

Over the next years, we will be working to expand the scope of our project. We aim to transform Chinese rural areas through practical learning and cross-cultural understanding.

Who we’re looking for

This summer, we are looking for 10-20 enthusiastic and motivated volunteers who would love to participate in our project.
