The 40 million people of Shanxi have mercifully been spared the worst of the current COVID-19 outbreak, and nearly all of our people have been able to remain in Shanxi during this time. While we recognize that changes to international travel restrictions are likely to affect in unpredictable ways those wishing to participate in our work, especially as the borders to China are still closed to foreigners, we are currently hopeful that Evergreen’s various projects will be operating “normally” at some point in the near future, and are planning accordingly and adapting as needed. If you are currently in China and are interested in joining in Evergreen’s work in the coming months please contact us early to discuss options. For anyone outside of the country, all opportunities to join our work are temporarily on hold until new visas are being issued again to visitors, but please contact us if you have any questions.
Educators and donations for SEIS:
Evergreen has an ongoing need for educators and education specialists for our Shanxi Evergreen International Students (SEIS). In this uniquely rewarding educational environment, our teacher team is intimately engaged in training and molding Evergreen’s youngest cross-cultural workers while also enabling their parents to more fully invest in their work in the local community. There may also be other opportunities in the Evergreen community to use your skills and gifts. Please contact us for more information.
Your contribution to the financial support of this local teaching team would be greatly appreciated. On the donate page please choose “Project” and specify “SEIS” as the beneficiary.
