Couleur de Chine
Couleurs de Chine is an non governmental organization (NGO), created in 1990 by Françoise Grenot-Wang, in order to develop education of girls in the region of Guangxi (South China). Originally cultural, the association took a humanitarian dimension in 1998.
The charity has benefited from the support of more than 2,500 private sponsors and 30 companies. Thanks to those sponsorships, nearly 4,000 children from the Miao, Yao and Dong minorities are indeed attending schools.
