Caring Culture

China Ministry

CRRS is dedicated to social causes such as poverty relief, caring for the underprivileged, raising awareness of the fundamental needs in Chinese rural villages, mountainous areas and the cities and providing education funding to help students complete their education.

Education Assistance

The sponsorship recipients are students from primary to post-graduate levels, and also teachers from primary and high schools in rural areas in Guangxi, Sichuan, Shanghai, Tibet and other parts of China.
  • To provide a better learning environment for the students, CRRS also supports the reconstruction of dilapidated school buildings and dormitories.

Disaster Relief

  • Donation in kinds for world-class disasters such as rice packs for Guangdong floods (2006), blankets for mountainous villages in China for a snowstorm (2008), and post-trauma counseling books for Sichuan Wenchuan earthquake victims

Local Ministry

Project Shine – Born to Shine Summer Kids Camp

The “Born to Shine Summer Kids Camp” is a one-week FREE summer day camp for inner-city kids in the East Vancouver community. In the camp the kids get to experience a variety of activities including playing games, singing, making crafts, DIY snacks, dancing, exercising, learning meaningful lessons, and much more! We facilitate team building, creativity, and foster confidence during the camp. Volunteer with us as camp leaders to serve our local community and build friendships with these precious kids! This camp is hosted by Project Shine under CRRS Canada and is a partnership with the local grassroots organization Vancouver Urban Ministries.

Project Shine – China Summer Trip

Since 2008, Project Shine brings Canadian teens and young adults to rural China for a two-week English teaching summer camp serving the local secondary school students. Locations include Rongshui, Luocheng, Longzhou and Gongcheng counties in Guangxi, and Wenshan county in Yunnan. We also develop leadership training for young people through alumni retreats, service projects, and fundraising events.

Project Salt & Light Spring Trip

Since 2010, CRRS partners with Carver Christian High School (now known as Vancouver Christian School) to conduct “Project Salt & Light”, in which we bring a team of grade 11 students to experience a cross-cultural outreach trip to China and Hong Kong.

Indigenous Ministry

In 2016 CRRS began a partnership with “Vancouver Urban Ministries (VUM)”, a Vancouver-based local charity, to sponsor four First Nation students in elementary school to attend the specialized “Rising Above Tutoring Program.” Students with learning difficulties receive a tutoring session twice a week to improve their reading and writing: the goal is to help them reach their full potential. 

CRRS have also begun caring ministry for Indigenous families and educating more Chinese Canadians about the First Peoples of this land and their cultures. Beginning in 2021, June 22 has been designated as “Eagles Rising Awareness Day”, extending this concept of journeying with Indigenous Peoples to Chinese communities in Canada.
