Starting in early July, Money Matters in partnership with the Tsinghua University and Tseng Hin Pei Charity Fund Summer Service and Learning Program conducted a trip to Dengkou, Inner Mongolia, China. Primary and middle school students in this rural and relatively poor area were taught English language skills and personal finance and economics skills. Money Matters founder, Larry Jia, gave his personal finance lectures in Chinese, and was selected to have his recorded lectures be uploaded to Tsinghua University’s poverty alleviation satellite program. Jia’s lectures, along with Tsinghua University professors’ lectures, will now be broadcasted to over 3,000 rural Chinese locations through a system of satellites. The 800 students were taught by a 10-person team, five of which were fielded from Tsinghua University, two from Macao universities, one from San Diego State University, and one from Oxford University. The two weeks not only resulted in lasting memories for the team members, but hopefully, also made an impact on the educational and financial futures of students in Dengkou, Inner Mongolia.
