Project developments:

  • In 1997-1998, the Tea Garden produced 184 kilograms of tea leaves.
  • At the beginning of the project, tuition aid program offered tuition assistance to 8 needy students including 6 girls, and teacher's award at total cost of RMB 4,500.
  • The project was not running smoothly. Local management team did not cooperate well. After the trial period, the Foundation had to discontinue the financial support to the program. This is the first failed project for the Phelex Foundation. We realize that supervision of the management team is crucial to the success of the project. This team is represented by Community Council.
