Wednesday, January 11, 2006 Lew Griswold: 7 students from China tour Valley nonprofits Lew Griswold: 7 students from China tour Valley nonprofits: "Seven college students from China will be visiting Earlimart today, touring a 51-unit Self-Help Enterprises 'sweat-equity' housing project.

The students, in their early 20s, are here on Chan Fellowships, which bring Chinese students to the United States for six months to study nonprofit organizations and how they are managed.

Tuesday, they visited Delano to learn about the history of the United Farm Workers of America.

'We want to expose them to an organized movement in the United States,' said program manager Carrie Donovan of Berkeley. 'The whole idea of community organizing and nonprofits isn't there yet in China. They can adapt it in a way that works for China.'"
