Shandong Shin Shin Schools

Shandong is a coastal province of eastern China, abbreviated Lu, after the state of Lu existed here during the Spring and Autumn Period. Shandong's name literally means "mountain's east," which refers to the province's location east of Taihang Mountain. Shandong is the second most populous province of China, with 99% being Han ethnic Chinese. During the nineteenth century, China became increasingly exposed to Western influence, and Shandong, a coastal province, was especially affected. Qingdao was leased to Germany in 1887, thus the rest of Shandong was generally considered to be part of the German sphere of influence. Qingdao is the home of the well-known brand Tsingtao Beer. Shandong is one of the richer provinces of China, and its economic development focuses on large enterprises with well-known brand names. Shandong has also benefited from South Korean and Japanese investment, due to its geographical proximity to those countries. However, the extreme inland west of Shandong is much poorer than the rest of the province.

Shin Shin Educational Foundation rebuilt 16 schools in Shandong province from 2002 to 2007. The donations are primarily from overseas Chinese Americans who originally came from Shandong province. They wish to benefit the children of their hometown.
