The Ford Foundation has provided funds for projects, especially educational projects, since the establishment of its Beijing Office in 1988. Nevertheless, systematic funding for educational projects was not available until Dr. He Jin became the project officer in 2001. After 15 years of work on funding educational projects, Dr. He Jin retired in 2016. In order to summarize this experience and evaluate the effectiveness of the projects, the Ford Foundation recently hired external experts to conduct an independent evaluation for the educational funding projects directed by Dr. He Jin over the past 15 years.
