For us, we may choose to go hiking as a form of sport or a pastime. These kids have no other option – they scale the rocky mountains of Sichuan Province because it is the only barrier between them and their education. Our challenge is to make sure nothing gets in their way.

Sichuan is one of the poorest provinces in China, with three million peasants living in devastatingly poor conditions.

Yato village is one of the most remote counties in Sichuan. Here 177 children live in extreme poverty. They lack daily necessities, but their needs are ignored by the local government and the children’s suffering continues.

Working with the Sichuan Azalea Charity Foundation, Arteet Gallery will provide basic necessities for these overlooked children, such as books, school supplies and sports equipment. We rely on generous donations from people like you to ensure that these kids can further their education and work towards a better future.

In making a donation, you will not only be helping these children to secure a better life for themselves, but you will also receive a painting of your choice from the 50 beautiful art pieces in the “Charity 50” collection, selected exclusively for this event.
Please share our campaign, donate to the cause, and help us to bring a brighter future for the children of Sichuan Province.
