China is known as being the longest, continuous civilization on earth.


China


ELIC considers it a privilege to have worked alongside our Chinese brothers and sisters throughout the last few decades as the country has experienced tremendous economic growth and reform. Our teachers enjoy living on university campuses where they spend their daily lives with students, colleagues, and neighbors. Working alongside the government and school partners has allowed our organization to thrive and find our place of influence in this society.

ELIC sent its first team of six people to China in 1982. Over the last three decades, hundreds of thousands of Chinese university students have come through ELIC teachers' classrooms; many of these students now hold influential positions in virtually every walk of life. With China’s powerful history, it is unlikely that any other single country is destined to have such sweeping global influence in the 21st century. Invest in the lives of the future leaders of China through both teaching and engaging in deep, meaningful conversations.
