Rural Volunteering Tour – Henan


Want to travel and learn more about China while giving back to a rural community?

Stepping Stones is organizing two volunteer tours to Henan province this spring. As a volunteer on one of these tours you will have the opportunity to travel around China, experience Chinese culture first-hand, while giving back to the community by teaching English to under-privileged students in rural schools.

The first tour will be to Luyi county from May 16-20. Another trip will head to Zhengzhou and Dengfeng from May 30 – June 3. During these weeklong trips, volunteers will deliver fun and interactive English lessons to students at our partner schools for “left-behind” children, migrants and orphans. The trips will involve 3.5 days of voluntary teaching.

Sign up for one of these rural tours here.


Each rural tour costs RMB 3,500 per participant, which includes:

• Round-trip train to Henan;
• 24/7 staff support;
• Pre-departure preparatory training and workshop;
• Assistance to prepare lesson plans and teaching materials;
• Hotel accommodation;
• 4 breakfasts, 4 lunches, 3 dinners
• Local transportation;
• Administrative & training costs;
• Insurance;
• A contribution to support Stepping Stones’ work;
• Stepping Stones t-shirt;
• Volunteering Certificate for all participants.

Volunteers will be offered the option to visit a local tourist site during the tour at their own cost.

This tour is for over-18s only.
