JOIN US AT THE CRYSTAL BALL
SHANGRI-LA, JING AN
This four course Christmas feast is all in aid of good causes.
Supporting the WILL Foundation organisation - a sustainable and self-sufficient eco-learning centre for disadvantaged children.
It all began with a foster mother’s dream.
After adopting an orphan from the Shanxi province in 2006, enduring medical treatment and operations, she found she couldn’t find a place that would understand the educational needs of her foster son.
The mother began to dream of the possibility of creating a learning centre for children like her foster child, slow learners but totally capable of learning and succeeding in life.
The “she” became a “we”: the solo became a choir, a team, an inspired group.
After speaking to many people, she found a kind local family nearby Shanghai who generously donated their unused family land to the project!
They created an eco-learning centre to provide them with a loving and nurturing environment and a tailored guided program. We want to encourage their desire to explore, to create and experiment, to find their individual talents and to develop to their highest potential..
Their aim is to lead them to a more independent future.
The long term plan is to establish a sustainable and self-sufficient learning centre, with the children knowing how to build and maintain an organic garden on the premises to provide food for themselves and for others. The children will learn how to use their own creativity, talents and skills to become upstanding individuals, able to give back to society.
