The mission of China Service Ventures is to improve the quality of life for the rural poor in Henan, China. We give witness to the Gospel through Jesus' words: "Not to be served, but to serve."
We have identified opportunities for service in the areas of education, community, health, and good news. We call those areas our "service ventures." Within our ventures we operate several different programs, including caring for poor children by providing scholarship money for schooling; providing summer camps that allow campers and counselors to connect and grow together; sending ESL teachers to provide English training and develop meaningful relationships; and providing programs for children whose parents have to leave them at home while they go to larger towns for work.
China Service Ventures is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
