This prgram started in September 2019, featuring an independently developed software that can be used on mobile phones and computers so users can have an English platform to learn the 500 most commonly used Chinese sentences.
As a multi-year project, Heritage Language Learning Program is currently in preparatory work for the second phase - online teaching, expecting to start in Summer 2022.

The Power of Role Models Project.
Commend those who have made outstanding contributions to American families adopting disabled abandoned babies from China.
Heaven Forever Project.
This project refers to the death of Chinese children and American adoptive parents of American adoptive families, and the relative expenses of holding funerals for their families.
Adding Bricks and Tiles Project.
This project refers to the activities of providing support and funding for Chinese private adoption agencies. Such as purchasing teaching aids for adopted children.
Quota Donation project.
For the specific donation activities initiated by the Foundation, when the public donates, the Foundation implements the work of matching donations in equal amounts or in proportion.
Never Give Up Project.
This also happens to Chinese abandoned babies adopted by American families—the family that originally adopted the child from China to the United States gave up for some reason because they could not continue to adopt the child. And a new American family took over for adoption.
Two Annual Special Projects
1. Annual Recognition of Outstanding Models.
A. Donors with outstanding contributions. Whether it's donating directly to these families on your own, or through the foundation's donations to those who stand out.
B. Continue to write about writers, photographers, and media producers who have made outstanding contributions to the adoptive family.
D. Leaders who founded or co-hosted activities in line with the purpose of the Foundation.
How the activity is carried out: The parties themselves fill in the registration form, or a third party fills in the character recommendation form. It will then be reviewed by the Foundation.
After the review is passed, the foundation will issue certificates and bonuses to the winning role models on appropriate occasions, and conduct media reports.
2. Matching Donation.
For the specific donation activities initiated by the foundation, when the social people donate, the foundation implements the work of equal or proportional donation. For example, if the foundation carries out the "Forever Home" project, when someone donates 10,000 US dollars to the Lumpkins family, the foundation will donate 10,000 US dollars in a certain period of time.
Beginning in 2022, there will be at least one annual matching donation drive for U.S. adoptive families.
The specific project and when the matching donation will be implemented are subject to the release of the official website.
The act of foreigners adopting abandoned Chinese infants has a long history. It has been documented since 1914, when a Western missionary adopted an abandoned Chaozhou baby in Guangdong.
On April 1, 1992, China officially loosened foreign adoption and related laws.
After international adoption was opened, the United States gradually became the country with the largest number of adoptions. According to data from the US Department of State's International Adoption Agency, as of 2014, a total of 88,298 Chinese orphans have been adopted by American families.
Nearly 100,000 Chinese children have been adopted by American families. And this number is still rising year after year.
Among these adopted children, there is a significant proportion of infants that have a congenital degree of disability.
Also, among the adoptive families in the United States, there is a significant proportion of adoptive families that have adopted more than one disabled and abandoned baby. These families that have reduced their original quality of life because of their charitable behavior.
A Perfect Love is a contribution to these target families and strives to make these families have better lives.
The donations of A Perfect Love are indefinite and open to any eligible American family. See the Charter of the A Perfect Love for details.
Bo'ai School was founded about 20 years by Ms. Liang Bing. In the past 20 years, under the leadership of President Liang, the school has treated countless people and has 120 students. It has become a leader in its field in China.
Suzhou Bo'ai School has admitted students from various regions in China. It has become a veritable international child rehabilitation school. The school-related teaching, along with the learning team under Principal Liang, is constantly exploring and innovating their practices, which has made some aspects of the therapeutic education of cerebral palsy and autistic children in Suzhou Bo'ai School reach or exceed the current international level.
In order to promote the therapeutic education of Suzhou Bo'ai School to a new level and to further benefit children who are treated in China, the foundation has specially raised funds from society, mainly for the teachers to go to the United States for training and further studying. Experts would be sent to Suzhou Bo'ai School for on-the-spot training.
The donation funds to the Bo'ai School are used irregularly with the establishment of the annual project, and all are paid in the United States. The ultimate goal of the foundation's project is to promote the Suzhou Bo’ai School's model of teaching and learning for children with disabilities to grow better in China, including those outside of Suzhou. This will benefit more children who are unable to enter regular schools at the same age for regular education.
