About Umbrella Dad Foundation

The Umbrella Dad Foundation aims to help young people and children in China by “Putting Children First – supporting them to grow independently” which ties in with the “Umbrella Dad” photograph that went viral in September, 2015, and features the Foundation founder, Joe Liu and his young son as they walked home from school one rainy afternoon in New York City.

The goal of the organization is to help young people and children from developing regions or families in challenging circumstances, receive decent early education, positive guidance and help to build confidence and self-motivation.” Currently the Foundation focuses on providing inspirational and fun education about business, economics and financial literacy to young people.
