The Cool Mountain Education Fund is dedicated to the education of the Nuosu people and their neighbors in the Liangshan (Cool Mountain) region of China. We provide opportunities for youth, adults and for teachers. Our focus is on education, because we believe that an educated, informed population encourages not only social progress, but also the social, economic and environmental well-being of a community. We provide partial scholarships for students in rural areas to continue their studies in middle and high school. We support teacher training, and we provide supplemental salaries for teachers who offer Nuosu language courses using Nuosu language textbooks that we developed. We also support girls’ health education initiatives at two rural primary schools. Finally, we facilitate innovative community development projects that improve infrastructure and encourage economic choices. We are conscious of Liangshan’s need for sustainable ways out of poverty, and look to support small, innovative projects that will show the way. Our work increases the visibility and appreciation of rural culture in the global community.

We encourage you to join us in making opportunities happen for Liangshan youth and adults! CMEF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your contributions to our work are tax deductible.
