(Lee’s Summit, MO) – Secondary students from Summit Christian Academy (SCA) and teens4good, Inc. recently organized a school-wide book drive benefiting WLPP (Western Literature Promotion Program). The aim of WLPP is to enhance education in China by giving underprivileged schools the ability to teach English, providing them with materials to instruct with.

“The mission of WLPP is to enhance the cultural communication between West and East and to promote peace around the world,” said SCA senior and Chinese International Student Zewen Zheng.  Zheng is SCA’s WLPP high school ambassador. “The quality and quantity of suitable English reading materials for students in China are in short supply.”

SCA believes that their students are tomorrow’s global leaders, and equips their students to be global citizens. When senior Aaron Banks and sophomore Corbin Healy heard of WLPP’s need for donated American literature, they helped organize a school-wide book drive. From October through December, students of all ages came to school with books to donate to schools in China.

“Our goal was to have 500 books, but God blew that out of the water,” said Banks. “We were so excited to collect 900 books, largely thanks to the support of the Elementary students and their parents.”
