Even at a young age, he was able to see the difficulties suffered by many special-needs Chinese orphans, and in 2000 at the age of 16, he founded an organization that would aid in giving these children a better future. Mr. Dalio is a graduate of Harvard University." 
While at Harvard University, Matt Dalio and his Harvard China Care arm of the foundation were profiled in the student newspaper in March of 2004.
