Serving YUST, PUST, and the Children Program!
One of the greatest, daily challenges PUST faces is financing the most fundamental of operations. Providing for basic needs is an invaluable way to connect to the students. Your support of Partner with PUST will help cover the school's essential operating costs, affording the leadership and faculty the freedom to focus on PUST's mission: to educate and inspire. Partner with us as we undertake this historic opportunity to impact this region's future leaders.
This year, we are specifically raising funds to help feed the PUST community. Food is not only one of the most basic necessities PUST provides to every student, professor, and staff member on campus, but also one of the school's greatest outreach opportunities. Mealtimes bring students and faculty together in a setting that allows for deeper conversations and connections to form. It is in these simple, yet profound moments that His love and truth can break through into the hearts and minds of PUST students. Help continue to make these opportunities possible by making a donation today!
YUST PUST Foundation (YPF) is a faith-based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support for education and humanitarian efforts benefitting students and children in Northeast Asia. We seek to reach the future leaders of this region with transformative hope and opportunity. As our programs' main intermediary organization in North America, we provide resources to the Yanbian University of Science and Technology (YUST), PY University of Science and Technology (PUST), and Children Feeding Program. We also bridge the two universities to North American organizations and individuals who share a passion for their mission.
YUST was the first Chinese joint-venture university in the Yanbian Autonomous Prefecture and grew to become one of the country’s top universities. The university boasted an international faculty and ensured students graduated with tri-lingual fluency. More importantly, values of integrity and service were instilled throughout the campus and student experience.
YUST held its final graduation in June 2021. The school is now in the process of transitioning into a private Chinese university. Administrators are working diligently to ensure the original mission of the school is preserved as new, like-minded leadership prepares to carry the legacy of YUST forward. YPF continues to support the administrators of YUST as they oversee this process, but we are not actively fundraising for the school at this time.
Having its first graduating class in 2014, PY University of Science & Technology (PUST) desires to educate students to develop the country's infrastructure and reinforce the value of personal character. PUST’s curricula offer a range of applied majors pertinent to real life in the region and also promote the concepts of peace and prosperity. With the completion of their studies, students are equipped with a global perspective that reaches across disciplines to develop their country. They are also given tools to engage in shared international efforts, drawing from their exposure to cross-cultural ideas and regular interactions with PUST’s international professors.
All faculty members who receive donations through YPF have set up personal donation pages. Please contact the faculty member to whom you wish to give, and he/she will provide you with the link to their personal page. You can also reach YPF at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Children Feeding Program provides humanitarian aid for children primarily in the region’s rural areas, where the need is greatest. The program supports children aged 10 and under with food, milk, medicine, and clothing on a monthly basis. The cost to support one child is $20 per month. Program administrators purchase and deliver supplies directly to the children and their caretakers. The Children Feeding Program has served 100,000s children throughout its over 20-year history.
Geopolitical and pandemic conditions are unfortunately temporarily blocking our ability to send supplies to these little ones. The country has placed stipulations on incoming aid and restrictions on our oversight. We continue to monitor the situation carefully and will resume operations at the earliest possible opportunity. Until then, we continue to raise support for this vital program to ensure sufficient funds are available to provide immediate relief for these children as soon as doors open.
YPF is committed to supporting the Yanbian University of Science and Technology (YUST), the PY University of Science and Technology (PUST), and Children Feeding Program through Christian-based spiritual, academic, and financial resources in North America. YPF serves as a hub to connect the two universities to organizations and individuals in North America who share common values and vision. We also assist with humanitarian efforts benefiting the region's most vulnerable children.
