29 December 2016, Beijing, China / New York, USA – Gomif Partners (Gomif) have attracted overwhelming startup business plans on Beijing Cyber Startup Workshop in China. The program was started on 20 December 2016, as part of Gomif socialpreneurship incubation global initiative.
During the workshop, the program co-advisor, Tey Por Yee (Larry), once again demonstrated the ease to contribute back to society by using Internet technology – anytime, anywhere, borderless. Larry showed the crowd how to donate to “Train 90 Teachers in Rural China to Create Future” project (organised by Evergreen Education Foundation on GlobalGiving Platform), over the world wide web.
The donation will form part of the funding to help train teachers from rural areas in China to unleash their students’ potential and creativity in building their communities and preserving their culture. 90 teachers will be sponsored to attend the Information Technology in Education(ITIE) Conference 2016.

A normal day – students confined in the classroom
Students’ potentials, creativity, and future in rural China are severely limited. Teachers play a substantial role in their development.
