Alleviating Poverty in China

 Since the 1980’s, China has demonstrated remarkable economic growth and development. Despite this surge forward, however, many rural Chinese communities do not have clean water; are afflicted by TB, malaria, HIV, and other diseases; and many do not have enough food to eat. There are still 150 million Chinese people living below the World Bank defined poverty line of $1 per day, and the majority of these live in rural areas.

Development That Puts Children First

 Planet Aid uses the proceeds it generates by selling used clothing to support smallholder farmers, strengthen education, increase HIV/AIDS prevention, and create community development.  An example of one type of development model supported by Planet Aid is the Child Aid Program. Child Aid is implemented by members of Humana People to People in many countries.  Planet Aid has been supporting Child Aid projects in Belize, Brazil, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ecuador, India, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
