Leah (pictured in the middle) is VPP's newest partner, forging a new relationship between VPP and Peking University... 

"Public health is my current major and it gives me an understanding of how people work to improve public welfare and help those who are disadvantaged. Besides my passion for promoting public health improvements and equality on a broader scale, I am also interested in philanthropy and social enterprise. Joining Michelle's team is a great opportunity to help conduct research, and it also provides a pathway for students from Peking University who want to put their efforts towards charity. The project builds strong partnership with the academic institution of Peking University and student run organizations in campus with a nonprofit that is reaching out and providing real aide to real people. Peking University can provide solid academic support as well as human resources to help VPP conduct project assessment and health related support to villagers."

Special thanks are due to those people who helped VPP in the early days – Paula de Lisle, Marieke Reichwein, Li Yixi, Jolanda Jonkhart, Dominique Harris, Carey Liu, Sun Wenjie, Li Liang, Dou Dou, Marguerite Oerlemans, Dr. Dashiel Gantner, Dr. Lin Jianmei, Ma Qingyun, Dr. Ren Yu, Yang Jun, Cui Jinbin, Zhang Xiaolin, Zhu Pingyu, Rini Quirijns, Corinne Le Roy, Peter Witton, Zhao Xiufang, Wang Fangyu, Lu Hong and the Village Committee and people of the Maojiazhuang, Xifeng, Sanquan, and Sunjiacun villages. We’s also like to thank the Baoji Women’s Federation and the Baoji Chencang District Women’s Federation.

Over the past ten years, a huge number of  people and organizations have helped us. From helping us to research the area, gain an understanding of local conditions, gather data, talk to local women, to developing the idea of a bath house, it’s design, funding and operation.
