Breaking the Systematic Poverty Cycle in Rural China
Hi! We’re a social enterprise run by international high school students in Shanghai. We sell organic tea sourced straight from the tea farms of Xiaohusai, a village in Southwest China where educational resources may be insufficient. Thus, our mission is to ensure fair pay for tea farmers and expand the opportunities given to the children of Yunnan.
Xiaohusai aims to break the systemic, generational poverty cycle in rural China by ensuring fair pay to villagers and providing a merit-based scholarship system for their children.
What is a Social Enterprise?
Xiaohusai acts like an enterprise - we operate on the basis of maximizing revenue and minimizing costs. However, our group has one ultimate goal: serving others. 100% of the profits from our sales are either reinvested back into the village of Xiaohusai (小户赛) or spent towards Research and Development.

A social enterprise combines entrepreneurial activity with a social purpose. Its main aim is to create social impact by maximizing profit for the beneficiaries.
