Confucius Institutes are named after the Chinese philosopher Confucius (551*479 BC). They are public educational and cultural promotion programs, funded and arranged currently by the Chinese International Education Foundation, a government-organized non-governmental organization (GONGO) under the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China. The Confucius Institute program was formerly under Hanban, an organization affiliated with the Chinese government.
