From January 27th to February 2nd Project Pengyou Chapters across the nation will celebrate Chinese New Year by Paying-it-Forward (affectionately dubbed PIFOCNY for short). They will “adopt a school” in their community to visit and inspire kids to learn about China and become global citizens.

Paying it Forward:

From January 27th to February 2nd Project Pengyou Chapters across the nation will celebrate Chinese New Year by Paying-it-Forward (PIFOCNY for short). They will “adopt a school” in their community to visit and inspire kids to learn about China and become global citizens. We hope that through teaching kids to discover and appreciate other cultures from a young age, it will build the foundation for them to approach not just US-China relations, but anyone who is different from them, with empathy and respect.

Read below to see how you can get involved:


How to Get Involved:

  1. Send a message to nihao@projectpengyou.org to see if your community has a Project Pengyou Chapter.
  2. If there’s no Chapter in your area, identify a local school through cold calls/emails or by reaching out to your own teachers.
  3. Pitch your ideas to the school.
  4. Prepare an activity or presentation (If you need ideas, feel free to email nihao@projectpengyou.org)
  5. Share your photos with the Xiao Pengyous online, and don’t forget to #projectpengyou #payitforward #PIFOCNY (print out the Project Pengyou special edition Year of the Rooster sticker to use)!

Teaching children about other cultures constructively is one of the best ways to start building a more peaceful and inclusive world. Click here to see fun photos from last year’s PIFOCNY!

新年快乐!
